Dad is Improving

After two full weeks in ICU from pneumonia, Dad is finally awake, alert, and mentally about back to about baseline. It’s a huge relief to see him better. I got to watch the feeding tube being removed, which I wasn’t expecting. His wife, Mary, had surgery on her right hand just a few days ago, and will be recuperating at a local health clinic where she has friends and used to work. In the meant, we seem to have a clear plan to get Dad to rehab in Austin, where I’ll be until Memorial Day weekend, and then return him back to Lockhart once he’s discharged, at which point Mary should able to drive his automatic transmission car. Hopefully this will allow me to both visit him regularly, as he’ll be closer than the current 35 minute drive, and to stay focused on getting my house on the market before Flipside.
