Sunday morning around midnight we received a call that Patrick's Dad had fallen down. He bumped his head and was in a lot of pain in his back. He shortly blacked out after that, so Patrick's Mom called the ambulance. We left St. Louis as fast as we could to start our trip to Fort Myers, Florida. Once they got him to the hospital they lost his blood pressure and his oxygen went to 0. They hooked him up to life support. Today, they tried to turn down the oxygen levels and he didn't do very well, so they had to turn them back up. Tomorrow morning they will try again to turn down the oxygen and take him off life support. After a lot of tiring driving we made it to Fort Myers around 1 o'clock today (Tuesday) We're exhausted, but glad we made it here. Please pray for Patrick, his Mom and his brother as they make decisions concerning his Dad. Praise the Lord in 1995 Carlos made a profession of faith. It's a comfort to the hearts of his family that he accepted the Lord as his savior. I'll try to keep everyone updated on how things are going. Thanks so much for praying.
