Yesterday Dad had a down slide after about a week of steady days. He was pushed a bit too much, and actually went into a relapse, including respiratory failure. He’d had to wear the Bi-PAP again, and was unaware of Mom completely.
Today, Dad’s much better. He only has an oxygen mask on, and he knew Mom on sight. He beckoned her into the room too soon; they were just redressing his bandages, and she wasn’t supposed to be there. When she could go in, he held on tight to her hands.
Dad’s on his way to getting better now.... Though we’re still not sure exactly what that means. I’m wondering how much harder it will be then we think.
