Abe's Still In The Hospital

I've been making the post over at his http://brookvilledailyphoto.blogspot.com
So thought I better also post here tonight.

Good evening, here it is April 1st. all ready. Hard to believe. 53 years ago today, oldmanlincoln gave me a diamond after dating eleven days.

Here's a very old photo.

Also want to update you on his condition. They are givning him breathing treatments every four hours. They also were giving him antibiotics through like an IV. But starting this evening they will start him on antibiotic pills. Tomorrow they want to x-ray the lungs and see how they look. They want to do a heart cath before they send him home. The last one he had done was in 2004 and they want to check the status of the blockage he has. So we're still going one day at a time. I was there with him from about 9:15 this morning helped with his sponge bath, until around 3:45 this afternoon. I figured he needs to get some sleep and I know I was tired, so I came on home. I'll be talking to him later to tell him good night.

I want to thank everyone who has left a comment. I copied them all this morning and printed them out before I left so he could read them. I think he has felt bad enough that he hasn't missed the computer, YET. But I have a feeling he will by the week-end. Good night everyone Have a great evening.

Dear Patty ~~ I was shocked to hear about Abe's illness and hospital stay and pray that he will soon be well again and home with you. I went to his photo blog and read some posts there. And apart from the illness, I read about the bird on the windowsill which was lovely and the story of his parent's divorce. Very interesting.
I came to thank you for your comments, not knowing about him being ill. Glad you enjoyed the jokes etc. Take great care Patty, and look after yourself, wishing the very best to you both. Love, Merle. Great photo of you two.

Happy Anniversary Patty and Abe.

I was thinking of you both all day and last night. Jane was also. Peter called by and he was very sorry to here about Abe.. he goes quiet when he's upset Peter.... he took Defor out to his favourite hill.. he back later before he went home and asked if I had heard anything else. Thats Peter all over..
I look forward to seeing him back posting as soon as he is right to do so.
Tom, Jane, Peter.. and Defor

Hello Patty... I left the above comment on Abe's blog for you as well. I should also have said that we are thinking of you as well... make sure you get some rest as well. Jane wishes we were nearby and then could call.. and visit.
