Dad to be released from Hospital on Oct. 1

I had a good day today.
Mom called and told me that my did is scheduled for release from the
hospital on Oct. 1st. His heart and lungs are doing much better - Thank
You God  :)

UPDATE: - October 4, 2010

Dad was released from the hospital at 1500 hours on October 1, 2010.  He is happily at home and resting well.  He and Mom report that he is getting stronger physically and mentally and progressing well. He starts physical therapy today (Mon, OCT. 4) and it looking forward to having his life back. I found it strange that he was released from the hospital on the same day, and EXACT same time that I was released from the hospital.

Heavenly Father, I thank you for blessing my family and working all the daily miracles that you do. I ask that you continue to watch over my earthly Father and Mother and continue to bless them health and wellbeing. In Jesus' name, Amen.

Please Pray for my Dad...

I realize that probably no one will read this post, but I have to unload these thoughts.  My 73 year old father went into the hospital about a month ago for a lung surgery.  He was in reasonably good health and of sound mind when he went in.  The hospital stay was supposed to be 1 week.  Here it is a month later and he is still there with a multitude of problems.
  • His good lung keeps collapsing (pneumonia is suspected)
  • His heart rate is 150-200 beats per minute (medication to reduce isn't working)
  • His left foot has severe edema (blood clot is suspected)
  • He is confused to the point that he appears to have lost his mind. No one really knows why.
I ask that anyone reading this blog post pray for my Dad (Charles).  Please add him to your prayer list at your church.  My father is a great/kind man.  He has worked his entire life to take care of his family and did so very well.  My father only had a 8th grade education. He quit school to help provide for him family. He served honorably in the military (Army), and has always worked hard for us.  He was a truck driver for 40 years and married to my mother for 50 years this month.  He adopted his great-grandson (Jake, my sister's grandchild) and only wants to spend a few quality years with little Jake before his life is over.

I beg you to pray to whoever your deity is and ask that my dad be healed and returned home in reasonable health and sound mind.  Thank you all..
