I had hoped to post soon since I’ve been deficient in posting lately. Unfortunately I had hoped to post with more pleasant information than I now have.
On Monday, Meg’s dad Arnt went into the hospital for a bowel obstruction (similar to the problems that kept him from attending the wedding.) They performed surgery to correct the obstruction that day. Sadly, the surgery wasn’t successful. He spent the rest of the week in the hospital without any progress.
Yesterday he was moved to the VNA (Visiting Nurse Association) Hospice in Valparaiso, IN. Meg flew into Chicago in the evening and I drove down overnight. Today we’ve been spending time with Mary and Arnt at the hospice. Meg and Mary have been making phone calls and visiting with friends here at the hospice. (thanks for visiting, Tom / Diane / Monica / Iris / Bitsy / Barb / Don & Kathy / Sally / Linda / Bob & Lonnie.)
Please send your thoughts and prayers our way. Thanks for all your support, we’ll try and keep everyone updated.
