umm... hi everybody! this is aubrey and i am kinda new at this whole blogging thing. i mean, i've done blogs before but not on this one. anyway, today i went an visited my dad and i have to say, it was really amazing how strong he is already! as i walked through the NICU (neurological (sp?) intensive care unit) there were people who couldn't even open their eyes but my dad was talking, eating, and he even got out of his bed to sit in a chair while he ate his lunch! the doctor also had GREAT news. my dad said that the doctor came into his room and he didn't stay very long or anything, but he did say that on the MRI scans, there was no sign of anything that would stop him from being able to use his left side again. my dad asked if they would have to do another surgery and the doc. said no!! we were really happy about that :)
My grandma, (Jeff's mom) is still here and will be staying here for a while. she is a LOT of help. without her i wouldn't have a life because i would be babysitting ALL the time! [thank you grandma :)]
my dad would also like everyone to know that he would like visitors because on Tuesday, my mom will have to be at work for a while, and he gets really bored when he's all alone; and the television channels aren't really the best so that doesn't help. unless my dad wants to watch the recovering patients channel on channel 29! ha ha. anyway, keep my dad & the rest of us in your prayers PLEASE!!!
lots of love,
aubrey dodd :)
