    Grandpa Art Update (8/18/08)

    Grandpa is still in the hospital...waiting to for a doctor to find out why/where he's losing blood. And since they're not sure if they need to do an operation, he's been without food/water for some time now.
    Please keep him in your prayers.

    Hi everyone,
    Yesterday, my Dad was given 2 units of blood and feeling a little better.  The doctors put him on a liquid diet yesterday with no food and water after midnight in case they need to do a procedure on him today to determine where the bleeding is coming from.  Well I have been waiting to write this email hopefully to hear something from his third gastroenterologist (he has a new set of doctors each week), but he hasn't been in to see my Dad as of yet (11:55 a.m.).  So again he goes for a long time without food and water. The lack of water is not good for extended periods of time due to his already compromised kidney's.  His kidney's are only 30% operational but were fully operational upon entering the hospital two weeks ago.
    Please continue to keep my Dad in your prayers.
