I thought I should let you all know that Dan's dad, Jess, has been in the hospital for almost 2 weeks now. He suffered an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm(thank goodness for spell check) . He started not feeling well the day of Brent and Cindy's wedding. By that Thursday Doris thought he was dieing and called the paramedics. The aneurysm did not burst until he was in the hospital but he hadn't felt well because blood was leaking into his stomach. Less than 50% of the people that have this surgery survive the surgery. He did well with the surgery but is having a hard time breathing. Tomorrow they will do a Tracheotomy to help him breath.
They almost lost him the other day when trying to reinsert the breathing tube. He is being kept slightly sedated so there hasn't been much communication.
He is at the U hospital, Dan has gone up almost every day.
Terri came in from Dallas and is staying with Doris, getting her to the hospital and back. We are very grateful that she is not working now and is able to be here.
I'll try to keep you posted...
