Mom said Dad was awake more today than he has been for several days. He sat up in the chair for over an hour this morning, and when she brought him the newspaper, he looked at the first AND last pages of the front section! When I was visiting, he never did more than glance at the headlines.
Mom brought Josey to visit him this morning too. This afternoon the nurse was planning to bring him to visit the apartment. Mom wasn't sure it would happen though, because Dad was sleeping, and because the nurses were busy with a new patient being admitted.
Overall, it was an encouraging day. :-)
