Pray for Grant

Grant's daddy here.

Last night's blood drive was a huge success!  Claire and I had to leave before the final numbers were in, but I think they exceeded the donation goal by 100%.  Melanie and I are so thankful to Ron, Nancy and their family for doing this.  They not only hosted the drive, they got involved by donating blood themselves. Among many others, we are so grateful for the Chambers, the Mangums and the Atterburys for being there.  One of Melanie's Bearkat friends drove all the way from Spring to be there and donate.  It was very moving for me to see so many people from the community come out to donate in Grant's honor.  For example we met a couple at the first Tin Roof blood drive in December who had recently moved from Denver.  They just happened to be eating dinner at Tin Roof that night and they donated for Grant.  They were back last night!    I hope everyone knows how appreciative Melanie and I are of the support we've gotten.

Grant is scheduled to get out of the hospital this evening, but we are starting to think that may not happen. His temperature is slowly going up this morning.  He is hovering around 99 right now; if it hits 101 it is considered a fever and he cant leave today. If that happens, there is no telling how long he would end up staying in the hospital.  It could be as much as 2 weeks.   We are praying for the best but preparing for the worst.
