Bradley and I are in Houston this weekend with mom, and Brad and I stayed at the hospital all day today with him. Dad had a REALLY rough day, they have discovered a virus in his bladder and he now has a catheter in and they are running a constant flush of his bladder. The virus is causing really severe spasms of his bladder and it is really painful for him - unfortunately we had a very intense day full of them. They are giving him anti-spasm medicine but it can take a few days before it builds up enough of a level in his blood to really alleviate the spasms and pain. We are HOPING that the worst of it was today and that tonight and tomorrow will start to bring some relief. The virus is sort of tricky and can last up to two weeks and they have to continue this constant flush for the duration of the virus so we need SERIOUS PRAYERS that we can beat this thing FASTER than that!!
As for his other counts they are still very low and he had 2 units of blood and 2 units of platelets - so we need BIG time prayers for that turnaround as well!
Thank you all so much for you love prayers and support - please keep those prayers flowing - dad has been feeling like every day just brings worse and worse news and symptoms and we need that day with BETTER news something terrible!!
Love to all and more tomorrow!
