Keep on praying!

Here's a picture of Dad taken last Christmas.

Prayers are definitely helping! Dad is better this morning. He's awake after being in a coma-like state all day yesterday. He's responsive to us and is even trying to talk through the bi-pap mask. Of course, we can't understand him, but every now and then, a word gets through. The renal doc is working on his kidneys. Please pray that what he has in mind to do will get the job done. If not, Dad will have to go on temporary dialysis. Wow. Can't believe all the ins and outs of the functions of the human body. Again, I'm learning a whole lot more than I ever wanted to know.

Thank you all for your continued thoughts and prayers. Even the doctors and nurses are astounded at his recovery from yesterday to this morning! They ask, "what happened in the night?" We say, "prayers!"

I'm so happy to read that he improved so much. You are just on a roller coaster, aren't you? Hope the plan works and dialysis isn't necessary. How many of us are powered by prayer? I don't know how most of us would keep going, I don't know how non-believers do it.
