Yay!!!!   Dad's doing great. He knows who people are, and he's able to help the nurses move him around and everything. He also knows when he has to go potty, which is a good improvement according to his nurse.

He got moved from CCU to the fifth floor (I forget what it's called). But this does mean that he's getting better/stronger, and that he doesn't need as much medical attention as before. Everything is out except a few lines for IV, a couple meds, and his oxygen thing for his nose and wires to monitor his BP, HR, and O2 levels.

His memory is funky, going in and out on details. But he knows who people are and some things about them. Still, yesterday his friends from work visited in the morning and he'd forgotten by the time we got to the hospital (about 3 to 4 o'clock).

Mom said he was twitching his legs and complaining that he had to build his muscles up so he could walk. The physical therapist didn't really work with him yesterday, but he did sit up in the chair again for about a half-hour.

Mom's going down after work today, so we'll see what happens then.
