It's been a few days since my last entry. To tell the truth, I've been just plain exhausted. This ordeal is beginning to wear us all out. Let me bring you up to date on Dad's condition.
What we thought would be only 1 day in ICU turned into 3 days. Dad had some minor complications which warranted some extra time in ICU. This morning he was finally moved back to a private room. He is recovering slowly. The doctors are keeping him on lots of pain medication and he is somewhat sedated. And while he seems to understand everything you say to him most of his responses are smiles or nods.
Mom has been spending every day at the hospital and Bob, Amy and I are trying to split our days there so that someone is with mom at all times. The boys saw their Pop-Pop today and I think hugs from Aaron and Jacob did more that any of the medicine he is being given.
