An update on the girls' father

An update on my girls' father... sorry if I misspell a bunch of medical terminology, I don't feel like looking up the spelling....

He is still fully sedated. On Monday they lessened the sedation & his blood pressure rose way to high so that's why they are keeping him fully sedated. They are putting in a Trach today, he has apparently developed Pneumonia and the Trach is better than the ventilator going down his throat I guess. He had to have a blood transfusion last night, but his hemoglobin is still low. They still don't know where exactly the bleeding is coming from in his abdomen I guess. They may have to go in for surgery. He has still not had any movement on his left side. His blood pressure keeps having problems with dropping. His sister says that they say he will never drive truck again (he's a truck driver). And they are still watching the bleeds in his brain. That is the part that they are most worried about and are watching the closest, the head injury. They still don't even know if he has any broken bones cause they are focused on the head injury and the internal damage.

Please keep him in your prayers.
