Dad is back in the hospital. I took him out there this morning at 4:00 am...... He is bleeding into his colostomy bag and his heart rate is down in the 40's. Me and PE spent from 4 till 8:00 am until they got him admitted and up into his room.
They did many x-rays and a CT scan of his abdomen. He is on a heart monitor and they are giving him Cipro antibiotics. I checked back with him at 5:00 this afternoon and he is resting well.
They will have the results to all the test tomorrow early afternoon. I appreciate your prayers. It has been a very hard day. Dennis and I have mother tonight and will have her till Dad comes home.


I don't know about tomorrow,
I just live from day to day.
I don't borrow from it's sunshine,
For it's skies may turn to gray.
I don't worry o'er the future,
For I know what Jesus said,
And today I'll walk beside Him,
For He knows what is ahead.

Many things about tomorrow,
I don't seem to understand;
But I know Who holds tomorrow,
And I know Who holds my hand.
Ev'ry step is getting brighter,
As the golden stairs I climb;
Ev'ry burden's getting lighter;
Ev'ry cloud is silver lined.
There the sun is always shining,
There no tear will dim the eyes,
At the ending of the rainbow,
Where the mountains touch the sky.
Many things about tomorrow,
I don't seem to understand;
But I know Who holds tomorrow,
And I know Who holds my hand.I don't know about tomorrow,
It may bring me poverty;
But the One Who feeds the sparrow,
Is the One Who stands by me.
And the path that be my portion,
May be through the flame or flood,
But His presence goes before me,
And I'm covered with His blood. I don't seem to understand;
But I know Who holds tomorrow,
And I know Who holds my hand.
