We made it to Dallas in record time -- about 2 hours. Jack is in critical condition and it has been confirmed he did have a stroke. His blood pressure is elevated, kidney and heart function are not at normal levels, and he cannot move on his left side. They are getting ready to do a cat scan of his brain to see if there are any blockages and if so he may be taken to surgery to correct it.
Jack was the driver for a bus trip and was at the hotel in Waxahachie, Texas. When he didn't come down for the 10:30 am departure this morning, they checked his room and found him on the floor. He was airlifted to Baylor Medical Center from there mainly because the hospital in Waxahachie did not have the clot-dissolving drug they thought he would get. But as it turns out Jack was not able to get the drug because it has to be giving within a 4 hour window and they were not sure of how long it had been since he had the stroke.
Thanks to everyone for your prayers -- I've been overwhelmed with love and concern from many of you my friends, but I have not been able to answer calls or texts as you can imagine. I will be calling Terri with updates so you can be sure you all have the lastest info from her. More importantly, you will know specifically what to pray. We found out one of Jack's nurses is Ky Faciane's sister (Dr. Fred Lowery's son-in-law) so that has been a blessing. Now we need as many prayers to go out as possible so spread the word for us.
