Another trip to l'hôpital

Dad's feeding tube came completely out of his abdomen yesterday evening, precipitating an ambulance ride about 6 pm. The tube was replaced with a new one with a larger diameter, which the nurses like, because it is less prone to blockage. Dad handled the whole thing quite calmly, according to Mom. :-) She went along with him, and they got back to Ledgeview about 11 pm.

Today he had another good day. He sat up for at least six hours this afternoon! He did tell Mom that his stomach felt "strange" and that it was bothering him, but not painful. So we hope that tomorrow it will be back to "normal"--the new normal!
