Tricia Dishes

Friday, October 05, 2007


David got very sick on Wednesday and was admitted Thursday to St. Dominic Hospital in Jackson with pneumonia. He had a CT scan today to determine what all is involved. His regular doctor is out of town, so the one that is filling in for him has the bedside manner of an ox, scared us to death, pretty much dismissed us as "hopeless". Hours later, we have come to the realization that this guy just looked at the chart, the x-ray, how long we have been fighting this, and just blasted in with his gloom and doom. He does NOT know David, nor has he seen how David is, an optimistic fighter who won't take "hopeless" for an answer! Dr. Graham will be back Monday, thank goodness, and David has already shown improvement from last night! So we have decided to just take this other doctor's "diagnosis" with a grain of salt, hard as it might be.
So, please send up some extra prayers for David. My sister, Linda is staying at the hospital with us, and we just came back home to shower, feed the animals, regroup, then we are heading back this afternoon. I am tired, sore (from trying to sleep on the floor, a story for another blog), and have to go feed the animals, so this is all for now.
I will update soon.

    Trish, You know our prayers are with you. If you need a place to get away for a while you are welcome here. We are only about 15 minutes from St. D. I have great trust in the faculty there and feel like you are in good hands even if you have had a DR. with his ego on his shoulder. Pam
