Please Pray For My Dad

Howdy, everyone!

My hubby and I just got home from driving our new car to Prescott to spend a little time there.  The drive there was great.  The drive back not so great....we had to stop four times so I could go to the bathroom for diarrhea.  And I mean the EXPLOSIVE kind!!  I know when you eat too much sugar at one time, it will cause "dumping syndrome" and I did treat myself to some cookies.  Bad Missy!  Guess this is my punishment.  I will take it and never do it again, promise!!

When we got back home, I received a phone call from my dad's girlfriend, Gina.  She said she and Dad were in Oklahoma City at the Memorial and he had a grand mal seizure (the most serious kind) and had to be rushed to the hospital.  Now, I have seen my dad have seizures since I was in nursing school in 1991.  The cause has never been determined, but he is supposed to be on a lifetime regime of medication.  I don't know what his doctors are up to now, but I know they took him OFF the medication awhile ago and started something else.  I don't like that at all.  If one medication worked, why fix something that isn't broken?  Yesh!  Gina is going to find out what is going on.  But I could use everyone's prayers.  My dad's seizures sometimes don't stop and that is very dangerous if he were left alone.  His heart could stop.  I thank God he is not alone. And I thank God Gina is there to help.  I just feel helpless that I can't do ANYTHING but pray.  I can't even be with him in this time.  Luckily they do call me once a week.  But I feel like I did when I lost my mom so suddenly....and I was WITH her.  But the feeling still the same.  I just couldn't do anything to help her and she died anyway.  I want my dad around for a long time!  He can't leave me an orphan!  Who would adopt me?  LOL...a little humor helps at a time like this!

So please pray that everything will be OK and my dad won't be in the hospital long and he will be back on his usual regime that worked so well.  He hadn't had a seizure before this one in a long time.  It's such a shame that some of his visit to Gina's has to be spend at the VA Hospital.  You practically have to move in there the lines are so slow.....

Hope everyone is having a good day.
Big hugs,

    thank you so much :) we felt the prayers from everybody, believe me this is one of scariest times I have ever had in my life,  my problem is I know that Bob knew that I was scared out of my mind, and that didn't help matters any.  I told need to stop this and be strong for Bob until he got in the ambulance than I started crying. shhhh

    he is doing good and resting good (Thank you everybody for the prayers)  I am also sorry for not keeping better contact, I kept having to charge for a few then go get phone, I finally left it in the car so it could charge after all it was dark and I don't like strange places at night!!

    I am so glad the people who were around (they helped me stay "calm") I am so thankful for every single one of them!~!! I told your dad he was quiet famous for a bit...there must have been 20 people came from no where!~!! I mean there was nobody around when he told me he didn't feel well

    We love you missy!!! and we will start calling more than once a week

    Love & Hugs
    Gina & Dad
