Good news! I may be coming home tonight.   I have used the walker today.

Good morning!   I spoke to Daddy this morning and he sounded 100% better! He was awake and able to carry on a conversation with me. He wasn't in pain. Those of you that have been to see him kno

Thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery JJ!!!

Lots of love, Johnny!!! :wub:

 

LPPT- If you need a ride tomorrow, I'll be home. Just give me a buzz and I'll run ya up there and back. :wub:

 

I should have my car back first thing in the morning.

My phone is dead because I only have a car charger.

I went straight to my App and did not get the message until this afternoon.

 

I was very anxious to see him for myself, he is in pain when he moves and when he is awake, so I only stayed for a little while so he could go to sleep and be more comfortable.

 

I am glad they had him doped up so he didn't think his BFF didn't care enough to come right away.

 

I left him my laptop to keep him company. I gave him lots of hugs.

Hi all! We finally saw the cardiologist. They cleared Daddy for surgery. They said that considering his history of heart issues that his heart looks well which is wonderful news. Now we are waiting on the lung doctor.

 

As LPPT said he is in pain but they have him on a Morphine pump right now so he is managing. Before I left he told the nurse he had no pain so that is good.

 

We still do not know anything about when they will do the surgery.

 

As for what we need - thank you all so much for your offers. At the moment I think we are okay. Cards, phone calls, and visits for now might be the best any of us can do for him. I'm not worried about me - just need him to be okay. The little bro is taken care of as well.

 

I may need some help with meals once he comes home. My sister, brother, and I all work a lot so we're trying to work out how we'll take care of him until he is better.

 

The most important thing is keeping him comfortable and getting him better.

 

He is in room 312 and he was very happy to have visitors today even if he was a little out of it.

 

Keep praying for more good news.

 

Thank you all so much! I'll update more in the morning.

Oh Johnny, I'm so sorry to hear this :(

 

You're in my thoughts and prayers.........

Guess you're gonna have a $40K hip like me, huh? It'll be a while before you can get out there and shake a tail feather, but you will again!! I can shake mine pretty good now and it's almost been a year. 8)

 

Take care! :wub:

You don't worry about a thing but getting him well. I'll cook 24/7 if I have to. I have only known Johnny for a little over 2 years. In that time I've come to expect a warm smile and a hearty laugh whenever he's around. He has the biggest heart and does so much good for everyone. He's made my life better for having him in it. I know you will keep us updated as you can. Please don't hesitate to ask for help with anything. If you can't get the word out here, I know all you have to do is tell LPPT and it will be done. Meals and care help are standing by.

Tell JJ to just rest, get well and take advantage of people looking after him for a change. Hate to see this happen to him. Great guy. I don't think you can keep him down long. He'll be up and about before you know it. Prayers to JJ. Does Nathan need anything. Who's looking after him?

 

 

My brother and I are sharing that responsibility. He's supposed to be going to our step-sister's a few days during the break as well.

Say a little prayer, kind thought, etc for JohnnyJ. He fell this morning and fractured his hip. He's at WellStar Paulding in room 312.

 

Surgery is a must but it can't be done just yet. He has to be cleared by the doctors for surgery.

Ouch!

 

Hope he has a speedy recovery!

Hi everyone.

 

Daddy is doing fine just sleeping a lot. We will have an update regarding when the surgery will take place sometime tomorrow. His blood was too thin to do it today.

 

Thank you all for the get well wishes, prayers, thoughts, etc....

 

Take care!

Update - the ortho doctor just came in. He's concerned with how the break is in addition to how thin Daddy's blood is so they are going to run some more tests. The doc said that normally you do not see these types of breaks in people this young so he's concerned that there is something else going on with his bones in general. But of course, it's a waiting game - we have to wait for more tests to find out what the next step is.

 

Stay tuned.

UPDATE - When I walked in at 130p today the nurse told me they were going ahead with the surgery. They are putting in a rod to repair the hip. We walked down to the OR with him and he was being his normal self trying to talk me in to getting him a cigarette. He should know better than to ask me but he did it anyway.

 

The doctor said the procedure should only take about an hour. The nurse just told us at 220p that they were getting started.

 

I'll update when I know more.

 

Can someone get in touch with LPPT for me and let her know? Dad's phone is deader than dead so I can't get her number!
