A Hard Day for Jack

Yesterday at church, we had a wonderful service to install our new senior pastor. It was a hard day for Jack though. During the children's sermon he had a bad seizure and hit his head on the floor. He was seated on the carpet, so at least he didn't fall.

It was also our first day to take CAYLIE to church with us. She was very good in church and was blessed during communion. A luncheon followed the service and CAYLIE was well behaved under the table while we ate. Jack wanted to walk with his cane to visit with everyone. He was walking with a couple of friends and suddenly fell with a seizure. He had on his helmet fortunately. He was unresponsive for 7 or 8 minutes.

He slept and rested on the couch the rest of the day and ate only a few bites for supper.

This morning he was quite chipper and told me he felt better. I have a sense of urgency for some reason. We need to finish our testing at Duke so we can decide if surgery is an option.

We are scheduled with hematology on March 10th. A couple of things in his bloodwork were low and affect clotting.

The doctors at Duke have been very good so far, so we hope for help with his seizures soon.
