Update No.5 on Uncle Arnold

I recieved anther email update.

Please pray for Arnold Seagraves and his family while they go through this rough time.

Arnold seems to be doing better.

It's been a bit of a roller coaster ride...some days are good and some are bad.

This week he's had some pretty good days. He's had a lot of visitors which we think really helps and Sue spends most of her time with him so he always has someone around. We have been very blessed to have her here.

At this point it's really hard to say how long he'll live. I will stay in touch but please don't hesitate to call. Thanks again for your love and support.

Update No. 4 on Uncle Arnold

I got this email from Tukey.

This is another update.

It seems that the good times didn't last long as Arnold is now back to what we believe is the verge of death.

The hospice nurse told us that he probably wouldn't last more than a week or two.

He is sleeping most of the time and he is eating and drinking very little.

Sue has changed her airline tickets so she can stay with us longer. She has really been a big help.

We appreciate your love and support.

Update No. 3 on Arnold Seagraves

I got another email from Dave Seagraves on his father Arnold Seagraves.
We just wanted to give you another update on the health of Arnold.

For a while we really thought he was on the verge of death but he seems to
have rallied. While he hadn't eaten any solid food for about three
weeks he is eating some now.

He is much more alert even though at times he is a bit confused. At times there is even a twinkle in his eyes.

He still spends most of the time in the chair in his room but will get up
once in a while and go to the bathroom. When he's feeling weak he uses
the porta-potty in his room.

If you want to talk to him there is a phone in his room and you will just have to talk loud for him to be able to hear you.

Much love, Dave and Tukey
