Dad's been doing good. His bowels moved yesterday, which is an odd thing to mention, but also a point of good news. He's still got the feeding tube, and the Trache, but as far as we know, they're both temporary.
He also got a shave yesterday. They got rid of his beard--and his mustache. Heh. Mom says he looks like a young man with white hair.... ^-^
I'll get a picture of him up as soon as I get one with good resolution. Camera phones don't quite cut it. He goes in and out of lucidity, but seems to lose it less and less often, and return much sooner than before.
I don't know if Mom's going to make it to the hospital tomorrow; it's raining now, and it's going to get cold... But we'll see. And then I'll post it. ^_^
