Update On My Dad

Good news!  My dad is improving little by little.  He went into surgery last week to have a tracheotomy.  He should be move comfortable with that than the ventilator going through his mouth.  They just moved him to the rehab ICU unit in Post Falls, Idaho.  His oxygen is at 45% and the swelling all over his body is down also. He needs to be at 35-40% oxygen before thay consider getting rid of the trach.  He is still loopy and not quite awake yet, but he is trying to open his eyes and move his arms a little.  They are hoping he will be fully awake by the beginning of this week.  Regardless, he has many months of rehabilitation ahead of him.

Thank you all for your prayers and support.  Now I think I will be able to fully enjoy Chicago!

See you there,
