Dad in hospital.

Received a call early this morning from my sister saying the doctor was putting my Dad in the hospital. He has been sick for almost two weeks with what was diagnosed as a bad sinus infection. Yesterday he went in for an MRI. It did not show any abnormalities. This morning, while in the emergency room, the doctor performed a spinal tap to see if he had encephalitis. One doctor said yes and the other said no. So we are back at square one……we don’t know what he has. He has been placed on a drip to hydrate him and an antibiotic drip. There are some additional test results that should ready tomorrow morning. The West Nile test came back negative. When I left the hospital tonight he was looking a little better and had eaten some dinner. Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers for my Dad. We really appreciate it.

While I was at the hospital today John worked on his return air vent project.

The old bedroom return used a 6"x10" mat filter.

The new bedroom return uses a 12"x12" residential pleated filter.

The old living room return used a 6"x10" mat filter.

The new living room return uses a door type 12"x12" residential pleated filter.

Laugh everyday. Happy trails. Stay safe.
