asking for prayer for my dad....

You know him here as oldmanlincoln Brookville Daily Photo

He was rushed to the hospital this morning with difficulty breathing...found out he had a collapsed lung....and they reinflated the lung but I still do not know any more than that.

He had a bleb (air sac/bubble) on his lung that burst causing the lung to collapse. He had this happen 20+ years ago too.

Anyway...ANY prayer for him and my mom(as she was really upset because dad really thought he was dying and kept telling her so)....would be greatly appreciated.

UPDATE: This was the same lung that collapsed before. SO now they may have to do surgery so this will not happen in the future.

more updates on his blog

Best wishes for prompt recovery. Please tell your Dad that all his Internet friends are sending thoughts and prayers his way. Hang in there.

Thank you Melinda, for the post. Except the surgeon saw him yesterday and said he wanted to wait before considering surgery. Not sure why.

Well have to get Audrey a bite before Angela and Gary get here. Angela just called about 5 mins ago and said Gary just woke up. See you guys tomorrow.
