Edited to add, 11 am Friday: Sorry to have left you hanging here! I've been going through everything in my craft supplies and closet and I strained my back, lifting boxes up to the upper shelves. OUCHERS!
I spoke with my Dad this morning and he said "they're making noises about his going home on Saturday". WAHOO! Thank you again for all of your sweet comments and being so kind and dear.
Happy Holiday Weekend to everyone!
Edited to add, 10 am Wednesday: Yippie! I just spoke with my dad and he said they had taken the tube out and had given him a glass of water!!! Yippie yippie yippie. I'm sure it's the collective energy of eyeballs crossed out there in bloglandia! I'll be going to see my dad this afternoon and find out more. (When I called, he was on his cell with a customer - yes, he still works at 91!) Thank you all for your sweet comments, care and concern, you are very dear to me.
Edited to add, 10 am Tuesday: I just spoke with my dad and he said the doctors said he is "a little bit better" this morning. Hooray hurrah! Thanks for keeping all those eyeballs and appendages crossed that he continues to improves! (We saw him yesterday and he was in good spirits, which is so important.) Thank you again for your support.
Edited to add, 3:00 PST, Monday: They are trying a tube down my poor dad's nosie and no food or drink for today and they will see how he is tomorrow and reevaluate then. Thank you so much for your kind words and good thoughts for my dad and myself!
Just a little note to let you all know that my father is in the hospital and I'm not sure when I will be able to resume regular blog posting. He has an intestinal blockage and they are debating this morning whether or not he will require surgery. He's had two surgeries for the same thing since 2008 and both recoveries were long and frustrating. (The first surgery took such a toll on him that he was greatly debilitated and he lost the strength and ability to swallow food and drink! He's a very determined chappie and he was able to relearn to swallow without aspirating. He'll be 92 in the Fall.) I'll hope to return here shortly with some good news. Thank you for your friendship and care and concern.
