Monday, October 19

Karl's having a pretty hard day. In the past when the nurses have asked "On a scale of 1-10, how's the pain?" he has said 4 or 5. Today he has been saying an 9 or 10. I don't think this is unusual; I think it has more to do with the anesthesia they used for surgery finally wearing off. I could be wrong, my undergrad is in English.

Karl had a CAT scan this morning at 2am and they did find some bleeding in his brain. They may keep him at the hospital for a few more days as a precaution, but they also could release him today. We aren't really sure at this point. His main doctor will be seeing him today. We are just waiting for his word.

I'll update the blog after the doctor comes. Either way, please pray for Karl's discomfort to subside.


  1. Home would certainly be a nice thing. . . Still praying!!!!

  2. We will continue praying until he is safely home and feeling much better. Thank you for the updates!
