Good Morning my quilting friends,

I have been checking in when I can since the 9th but that's about it. In the early morning hours of the 9th (between 2 & 2:30 am) my FIL fell in their bedroom. It's been bad, he has advanced Parkinson's, looked as though he made to effort to stop the fall. He broke his femur, had two brain bleeds, and fractured facial bones. He has been on a ventilator in the trauma unit since. This morning we are supposed to stop the vent, take out the tube and see what happened. He has not been fully conscious, has opened his eyes and made some involuntary movement but that's it. Anyway it's been a long ten days and today is going to be a very long day. The entire family is living in a fog right now because we are all so tired. Any prayers and good thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much. T

Thanks to everyone. I knew I could count on my forum family. My FIL was removed from the vent & all tubes, including feeding tube around 11:45 this morning. He is getting morphine & attavan every hour to krrp him comfortable. Breathing more labored, heart rate over 100, and his oxygen saturation varying between 50 & 70. It's all up & down, been a very long day and going to be a very long night! Please continue to pray. Thanks to everyone.
