Quick note... Dad just got out of the hospital a few days ago... yea really..after 3 weeks at one hospital he was moved to another and back in ICU... Bad pneumonia,collapsed lung,blood clot in his shoulder,heart attack and too many other blood infections to name... He was one sick man... He has been sent to rehab and they are trying to get him back on his feet. He is feeding himself now and eating well. He had a lot of fluid after being on a vent for 2 weeks. That is all gone now but after not being able to eat for so long because of such an infected mouth with so many blisters because of all the antibiotics he had been taken. It took weeks for that to clear up and lost nearly 60 lbs in 3 weeks, 30 lbs of fluid and 30 lbs below his normal weight. It has been since the 10 of Aug, I have gone everyday except 3 days when the girls went and I took the days off. It has been a long couple of months. but he is getting stronger I don't think he will ever be strong enough to walk or it is going to take a long time... He will be 87 on Sunday and on November 16th they will be married 66 years!! That is a long time...I am tired but I have found out how strong I can be and have to be...God is there by me everyday and all the prayers from friends and family have been wonderful. That's what gets me through everyday...
