Update 12/26/2011

Hello Everyone!

Here is the update:

- still waiting and praying for Dad to wake up! Sedation medication is still working through his system. I know that it seems a little disappointing that he hasn't woken up yet but the medical staff says that it could take several days before it works through the system. In one particular case, it took 6 days for the individual to wake we are staying the course and praying hard!
- he is still on a small dose of blood pressure medicine but his blood pressure is improving.

Some good news:

- white blood cell count is good and stable. They have stopped giving him medicine to increase the count.
- kidneys are stable! This is an improvement from a few days ago. The new antibiotic has helped the condition of the kidneys. We haven't received an update on the status of the infection but hope to have some more information by the end of the day.

As always, thanks to everyone who have continued to pray for Dad. We are so thankful and so blessed to have such a strong group of believers supporting us through this time!


  1. Love you guys...thanks for creating this blog, Todd, and for putting the journal out at the hospital. We missed seeing you today, but had just a glimpse of Bobby (sleeping). We're praying with you that the Lord will continue to heal and strengthen him...and that He will awaken him soon. Love, Tom & Nancy

  2. So good to hear that your dad keeps improving, we're praying fervently for complete healing and wise doctors!
    In Christ,
    The Shormanns

  3. We're all still praying for Bobby over here.

  4. I'll still keep praying. For him and for you.

  5. I am so glad you started this blog to keep everyone informed. I pray Bobby is doing better and will continue to pray for strength for the family as you journey together through this difficult time. Hope to hear good news soon. Jan Lund
