    FirstInLine's father is in serious condition. He has a long standing heart problem and has been on a pacemaker for quite a few years. A couple of days ago, it started acting up and he finally got bad enough that he consented to going to the hospital. Heart problems, pacemaker flakey, kidney failure and such in a 90ish old hard worked body.

    They needed to transport him from the little town in which they live to Las Vegas (85 mi,) but weren't sure he would last the trip. We got word this afternoon that he is now checked into SouthWest Hospital in Vegas and things are looking a litle better. Still no schedule for surgery and one not expected for a day or two.

    FirstInLine is flying down tomorrow to meet up with her sister and take up vigil with their mother.

    Prayers for Ed would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Pops

    Just said short message for Family and poor gentleman.



    Would hope for comfort and peace for him and family.

    The (renal) failure sure sounds bad for the ordeal.....
    hope for comfort.

    Update: this just in.

    Ed is doing quite a bit better. They have decided on no major surgery,but are sending him home in the next few days. They did install a filter to trap blood clots from getting to his heart and lungs. He asked if he would have to have his filter changed every 3000 miles.

    Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.

    Re: Prayers, please

    That's good news, Pops. How will they maintain the trap? What happens if a clot is caught? Will blood thinners do the trick

    We will keep him on our prayer list.
