Today's Update

My dad has been hospitalized due to extremely low blood pressure and an elevated pulse rate. Earlier this afternoon, he was experiencing light headedness and shortness of breath and nearly fainted. His blood pressure was taken and his numbers were not good. Paramedics were called and they put him on oxygen and gave him an IV feed. Once stabilized, he was transported to the hospital.

Tests revealed that there was internal bleeding somewhere, and a transfusion was required. He will be held overnight for monitoring and will undergo an endoscopy and colonoscopy presumably tomorrow, to find the source of the bleeding. Please pray that the doctors will find the blood source quickly and will solve the problem. We know that God's will is being done and are resting in His Sovereign Grace.

Jonathan, for the Pollock family
