On July 20th, Sunday afternoon, my father (whale) was on the beach in Sagamore Beach, Cape Cod Mass. While on the beach he complained about a headache and insisted on goingback the house. In the walk back to the beach he began to stumble. Brad my brother-in-law ran to his side and with the help of other got him to up to the road. He began to talk in jumbled sentences, and eventually passed out. Within 10 minutes there was an emt and ambulance on the scene. He was rushed to a Hospital in Plymouth Mass. Where they discovered he had bleeding on his brain. Is was determined he would have to be sent to a more qualified Hospital for brain surgery to relieve the pressure. He was rushed via ambulance to Beth Israel Hospital (the teaching hospital for Harvard). Within minutes he was prepped for surgery and taken in. His chance of surviving were very slim, but always the fighter he survived. The surgery went well and he continues to fight. He is currently in a coma that is not drug induced. The pressure from the blood caused several injuries to his brain. We are praying for the best, but know it is only possible with God. The doctors have gotten the bleeding to stop so we really are past the injury portion and into the recovery stages. They say the next 48 hours will be critical as we discover how much of his brain was impacted.
Today we will have more tests including some brain wave tests. Tommorow there will be an MRI to test how much of the swelling has gone down.
Please pray. I have faith he can feel it, I know i can.
