Update on Dad's Surgery
Dad has been in one hospital or another since July. He is currently at Windy Hill Hospital in Marietta, GA. My mother is now looking into nursing homes, where hopefully Dad will be able to get the ongoing care he needs and continue with physical therapy.
Dad continues to experience moments of disorientation, agitation, and fear. Several times he has asked Mother if he has been captured by enemies, or if he is in jail.
But there have been some hopeful signs that Dad's "old self" is beginning to emerge. Yesterday while CNN was on the TV in his hospital room, Dad was able to read what was on the screen about the crisis on Wall Street, and he asked Mother about their 401-K. I'm hoping and praying that these moments of lucidity, when Dad is oriented and fully in the present moment, will increase.
I want to thank all of you who have sent me messages, emails, and phone calls. I am truly grateful for your continued prayers and kindness.
