Update on Don

I wanted to thank everyone who has expressed well wishes to both Don and Marilyn, it is wonderful to have all of the prayers and support.  A big thank you for sending cards and for the phone calls showing your concern.  In lieu of sending flowers to the hospital we were thinking it may be nice to start a fund to help with the expenses of Marilyn being in Eau Claire for this long.  Don does have insurance, but we’re not sure if Marilyn’s expenses will be covered.  He is still in the intensive care unit and will most likely be there for another week.  Another angiogram was performed yesterday morning, but again, they were unable to locate the source of the bleeding or location of the aneurysm.  This could be good because it may mean the aneurysm has clotted itself and surgery will not be required.  They are still draining fluid and blood from around the brain and figure they are half-way done with that.  Don is doing well considering what has happened to him.  He can talk, think, see, and move all body parts.  He has been able to eat some solid foods too.  It will be a long road to recovery as he has been in bed for almost a week and has suffered trauma on the brain.  We are hoping and praying for a speedy recovery  and we hope you will all keep Don and Marilyn in your prayers.
