Good Morning Time for a Healthy Breakfast

Scott got his first sip of substance. Yes, I got a photo I'll share it soon. A vanilla Boost drink. It's not much but it's all he's had besides ice chips and tiny sips of water since last Tuesday.
The plan for today is to have Scott rest, "eat", recoop and try to balance out his blood levels.
His vitals are good and hopefully they stay that way.

Scott's leg doesn't look good. I don't think anyone wants to say it but we're rapidly losing hope.

Moving forward - they have to remove the sheath that's in Scott's artery in his groin. They are going to do that in the OR, probably tomorrow. As any surgery for Scott it's bound to be complicated and involved. sigh
We're going to keep watching his leg. I'm not sure how long we'll give it until a decision is made. I'm guessing maybe tomorrow on a decision but not sure on when an amputation would be performed (if it has to be).

We're hanging in. Scott has lots of drugs, some of which are making him wacky well.. wackier. We're switching him to Morphine to see if it helps. I managed a few hours of sleep and a shower.

For those that asked about blood donation. Scott is A+ blood type. It is possible to do a direct donation but it's very involved and not necessary at the moment. While I tease that Scott is running them out of blood product, he's really not.
But it's very important to keep replenishing the blood, platelet and plasma supply not only for Scott but for all the other people that need it as well.

I'm pretty sure Mark and Dan are coming for a visit around lunchtime. I'll be leaving during lunch time to take care of a few things. I'll be staying in the area and visiting again before I head home for the evening. I have a date with a beautiful little girl tonight.

Hoping for a quiet day and if it's not too much to ask another miracle for his leg.

I know how you love the cards I send--I am bored at work so I found some jokes that are right up your alley--Brandi, I am sorry as I believe you are reading these outloud!!! Hope they make you smile---I know I cracked up--then again----KT is probably more mature then me(at times)

1.Two antennas met on a roof, fell in love and got married. The ceremony wasn't much, but the reception was excellent.

2. A jumper cable walks into a bar. The bartender says, "I'll serve you, but don't start anything."

6.Two cannibals are eating a clown. One says to the other: "Does this taste funny to you?"

8.Two cows are standing next to each other in a field. Daisy says to Dolly, "I was artificially inseminated this morning."
"I don't believe you," says Dolly. "It's true, no bull!" exclaims Daisy.

9.An invisible man marries an invisible woman.
The kids were nothing to look at either.

10. Deja Moo: The feeling that you've heard this bull before.

11. I went to buy some camouflage trousers the other day but I couldn't find any.

13. I went to a seafood disco last week...and pulled a mussel.

15.Two fish swim into a concrete wall.
The one turns to the other and says, "Dam!".

16.Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly,
so they lit a fire in the craft.
Unsurprisingly it sank, proving once again that you can't have your kayak and heat it too.

18. A woman has twins and gives them up for adoption.
One of them goes to a family in Egypt and is named "Ahmal."
The other goes to a family in Spain; they name him "Juan."
Years later, Juan sends a picture of himself to his birth mother.
Upon receiving the picture, she tells her husband that she wishes
she also had a picture of Ahmal. Her husband responds,
They're twins! If you've seen Juan, you've seen Ahmal."

20.And finally, there was the person who sent twenty different puns to his friends, with the hope that at least ten of the puns would make them laugh.
No pun in ten did.

Just saw a really stupid commercial (shocking, I know). Anyway, guy is sitting on his bed getting ready for work (I think). Looking in the mirror his reflection is a superhero and the voiceover says: "Today, you are not just Scott --- your are GREAT SCOTT!" Had to share.

Jen - LOVED the jokes!!!!!!

Love you guys!

Hugs,love & prayers continue to abound! We're with you!

Sending lots of love and hugs your directions. So glad that Scott is stable at the moment. Prayers to keep him that way. Jonny is still out in the field finishing up corn. It seems neverending at the moment. Colton is playing basketball, his games should start in a week or so.
Love you guys!
