Dad Update

I haven't been able to blog about it because "living in it" has been exhausting. But I've seen a noticable difference in Dad these past two days where I can see the progress although he's been making progress all along, albeit extremely slow.

He is still in ICU and it's been 5 weeks today!

He has a temporary tracheostomy and today they put a valve on it so he could speak and he said, "How long have I been here?, When can I get out of here? and Why can't I get up and walk?"

I'm hoping he'll be home for Father's Day. His and mom's anniversary is June 6th and they will be married 54 years.
Such an accomplishment!

Sorry to hear this is going on for so long! I'd be frustrated if I were him too! Or even you!

My parents celebrated 52 years in July. I'm afraid we're not going to see a whole lot of that in a generation or two...

Wow, 54 years? I do hope he's home to celebrate.
