Well, today is day 2 of being in the hospital with my mom and step dad. I'll give everyone a quick synopsis of what happened. Wednesday he complained of a horrible headache, bad enough to not go to work. Thursday he still had the headache but it was worse. It was so bad that he couldn't even play music. Later the evening, he ate a small dinner and decided to lay down for a nap. He evidently passed out and went out. After getting him to the hospital via helicopter, he was rushed into brain surgery. After 2 1/2 hrs of surgery, he came out and they had drained all of the excess blood that was in his brain that caused him to pass out. According to the neurosurgeon this bleeder in his brain was inadvertently caused by medication he has been taking for his heart. The doctor was non committal in his feeling of how things were going to go after surgery. He said the next few days could be critical because the brain is so unpredictable.
So....here we are. There have been armies of prayer warriors sending up prayers in our behalf. Today when the neurosurgeon came in he was now encouraged by the progress seen. He said that based upon the condition my step dad was in, he should be dead by now. But instead...he is raising two fingers when asked, he is raising his arm on command, he is smiling....he is NOT dead!!! There is NO other explanation other than God. We have fully put our faith in Him and know that He is in control and no other. God has bigger and better plans for Mike and isn't ready for him to come home.
I am so pleased and happy for the progress and know that each day brings new baby steps and new signs of improvement. I will keep my blog updated on his progress and I will continue to give all praise and credit to God Almighty!
