Your Prayers are Needed

No pictures tonight, but just a quick post. Hubby is in ICU after  having a total hip replacement. He fell during the night at the nursing home fracturing his right hip. To fix it required the total replacement and he lost a lot of blood. They have finally got him back to a little over 9, but still losing so may have to have more. It has been a very stressful two days. I came home tonight, but they would not let me stay in ICU. I  needed to take care of a few things and I will go back in  the morning. They were having problems waking him because of the morphine and what they gave him to put him to sleep  in surgery. I told them no more morphine because it makes him so dopey and they were going to change that. Your prayers are desperately needed. Miss you guys.

My dearest Shirley, so so very sorry about all your problems with hubby. No wonder I woke up thinking about you this morning. My special prayers will be with you and hubby for a speedy recovery. I had been wanting to email you but had not even posted for two weeks cause of the death of my cousin, it hit me pretty hard. Why did he fall at the home, was he allowed to get up alone? This is terrible, please take care of yourself. Prayers and blessings... Lu
