I can put three sentences together, but will try. Terri has been so wonderful to post for me today…She was at our house in a matter of minutes of me getting the call and was able to go and help my Amanda get ready….and watch baby Jack.
the manager of the Hampton Inn where they found Jack called me before we left Shreveport to tell me we had as many rooms as we needed as long as we were in Dallas as their guest. There are still kind people in the world. We are at the hotel for a few hours, though I am afraid sleep may not come. we have no idea how long Jack had been on the floor trying to get help when they found him after having to bust the door in. It has been a nightmare. We are so fortunate to have a very close friend that is a doctor…actually Jacks roommate from college and he was here several hours before us and has helped make every decision plus he speaks to us in lay terms and consults with the doctors. We may be going back to the hospital as his heart rate has been dropping. Without going into a million details,he had a stoke, he is in congestive heart failure and his kidney functions are not good. Now they just called and his heart rate is dropping… He is in ICU, in the stroke pod….whatever that is. He has been in tremendous pain and this is a man that never complains about anything. He had a horrible procedure with no sedation and may never forget the trauma of that..and then the central line came out and he lost lots of blood quickly…
He does know us and we are all here…Dana stayed home with the babies. Parker does not know so should you run into him, say nothing. Tomorrow there is a possibility of surgery as his ceratoid (sp) artery has some blockage. There will be a consult with a vascular surgeon. So at this point please pray that his breathing stabilizes and that he makes it through the night….the next 24 hours are critical…I cannot thank you enough for all your prayers, texts, calls. We have very limited cell coverage in the hospital…if you need to call into his room, the number is T325
214 818 8825
nurses station 214 820 3909
We are all here…..Micah flew in from a business trip in San Antonio and Greg and Amanda are with me so we are ok. Will write more when I can. Please pray the he lives, as 4 little boys really need this man……
With hearts full of gratitude, thanks
for your prayers,
