Update

Well, after considering the situation with my Dad, Tyler & I agreed that I should stay in OK to see how I could help my family. Tyler & Anna are now on their way back to OH. Last night I stayed at the hospital while my stepmother, Suzanne, & Alleigh (my little sister) went home to rest. Dad is doing much better. He does has CHF (congestive heart failure) and they said it's a good thing he came in when he did because he might have died if he'd waited one more week. YIKES. He's had a blessing and it said he'd recover and that he still has things to do on the earth. I've remained quite calm through everything - I'm determined to help everyone else work through it. It feels good to serve the people you love. As far as when I will return to OH, that is not known. If my Dad comes home on monday (when he's expected to be released) and does well, then I'll try to fly home next week sometime. Dad slept all night last night - the first time in over 2 weeks. :o)

Keeping you guys in our prayers. I know you will keep us updated. Make sure that when you are taking care of everyone else that you remember "you" too!!! I think sometimes you overlook that person.

Jill,
I'm proud of you for taking care of everyone else.... take care of yourself too! I'm so grateful that we live in a time when medical care can help with so many things.

That is wonderful that you guys can be so flexible with everything and allow you to stay with your family. Does that mean you have decided to not go to school this semester? Be sure to take care of Jill too. ;)
