Mom reports that Dad was up walking in the hall today!!!! First time in a couple of weeks. Aunt Becky, Mom's sister, was in the same facility after a hospitalization, and she went home today. So Dad asked when it would be his turn to go home.
Mom told him she wasn't sure, and reminded him of the feeding tube. But he seemed motivated by the thought, because he also drank his entire 4-oz. nutritional shake at lunch!! I think that's the first time he's done that.
Mom's sinus inflammation has also improved. The x-rays showed no infection. So she plans to keep taking her new medicine and pray it continues to work!
Overall, it was a good day. Mom sounded amazed as she told me, "See, good things DO still happen!!"
