Another Prayer Request

Lucy and I came to visit my parents this week. We got here on Wednesday and my dad was not feeling quite right. He ended up having to go to the hospital that night because he was so weak and light headed and vomitting. He is still there. He has some intestinal problems to begin with, and they seem to be REALLY flaired up right now. He is bleeding internally - and he is really losing a lot of blood. He has already been given 4 units of blood, but because he is still losing so much blood, they have to keep giving him more. They have run several tests and have not been able to locate where the blood is coming from yet. He has had an upper GI scope and a colonoscopy so far and neither showed the bleeding. Right now he is having another test done in radiology that will hopefully reveal the source of the blood. I would really appreciate anyone taking a moment to say a little prayer for him or sending some positive vibes this way. I feel certain he will be fine, it is just scary not knowing what is going on and why. Thanks ahead of time for all of the support.

**good vibes** being sent dad's way. I hope all is well.

I will pray that they find the source of the bleeding ASAP. Radiology has to be the answer.

Kelly, we will be keeping you all in our prayers. It's so hard when you don't know what's causing the bleeding!!! My Father-in-Law had similar symptoms several years ago and he was diagnosed with "AV Malformation". It took several months and a trip to the Mayo Clinic to find out what the problem was. E-mail me if you want more info.
