Dad update

Well, I just wanted to give a little update on Dad's condition. He underwent surgery for bladder cancer last Tuesday, Sept. 28. He is doing fairly well and was moved this past weekend from the ICU to something called the PCU (Progressive Care Unit). They are having a hard time regulating his blood pressure and heart rate, so he is unable to get up out of bed much to build up his strength.

Aunt Phyllis Fidler from Chillicothe, IL, came down to be with us last week and spent nearly a week here in Arkansas at Dad's bedside. She's one cool and truly caring lady. Her husband, the late Carl Fidler, was my Dad's brother. It was good moral support to have Aunt Phyl here during this trying time.

I know in my heart Dad's going to recuperate -- it's just very slow going. All of your continued thoughts and prayers are honestly appreciated. Thanks to everyone who has shown support. It means a lot to this '70s chick!

Peace,
Julie
