Monday’s report

4 Jan

Got some good news a few minutes ago from Greenville: Dad is alert, movement is good, and they decided to REMOVE THE VENT TUBES!! He is talking, answering questions, recognizing people, and ready to get the heck out of there!

Yesterday afternoon doctors decided to go ahead and drain the other side. It was a sudden decision, not an emergency but it was urgent. Steadily throughout the day and night Dad made large-scale improvements, much more than he’d made over the past week.

So, we are climbing toward another peak. But the road will still be long. I suspect Dad will have to do some inpatient physical therapy. And now I pray for patience, for he and Mom. This road will be a long one and there WILL be valleys to go with the peaks.

As for Monday, we are climbing uphill!!! And it feels good!
