I do believe that it was God's plan that I stopped to say hi so that I was there to help him when he fell. I did not know the dog was going to run so therefore it was not my fault. It was a horrible thing to watch and I still can't get the image out of my head but I have learned to not have that sinking feeling of guilt when I think about him.
He is still in the hospital. It has been a week and a day and he hasn't really improved much. He is having double vision, he get confused about things, he can't speak a whole sentence and he has no appetite and is hardly eating anything. We are doubting the care he is receiving (or lack of) and I am calling tomorrow to speak to the Social Worker about it. He was on Morphine every 2 hours for the pain in his head but that didn't touch it. Now they have him on Dilata which is a narcotic too and as soon as they give it to him, he is knocked out which is somewhat good because then he can rest but I'm not sure if that is good for him or not. They did another Cat Scan this morning and we didn't hear what the results were yet. Every day we are hoping and praying that he will be better. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers!
On a positive note, my Mom who had broken her leg (or so we thought) went today to have her cast redone because a doctor in the hospital just happened to look at it when he came in to see my Dad and told her that her cast wasn't on right (it was put on by her Podiatrist because he is a friend of hers!).....so she went to an Orthopedic Surgeon today and he took the cast off and said that it was the worse cast he has ever seen and was even going to save it to show as an example of a "bad" cast....they did an x-ray and here it isn't even broken!! She left cast free and is able to drive which is wonderful because now she can take herself back and forth to the hospital which she is so happy about because she feels like she is an inconvenience (even though she isn't!)....my Dad actually smiled when she told him that they took the cast off!!
Thank you again for being such wonderful friends. Hugging you all!!!
