I know I am extremely far behind on e-mail. Apparently the hospital blocks e-mail so even though I have my computer here for the last 2 days I can’t receive any or send it out. I know a lot of you have been asking where to send cards for my Dad. I am collecting them because we don’t know when he’ll be moved again. I’ll also post here when I’ve gotten cards so that he can thank you. I haven’t been home to check my mail in 2 days so I bet there may already be some there.
Today they removed the intubation tube and he is able to talk a little. His throat is very sore and dry. If blood gasses come back with good readings they will be able to keep the tube out, but if CO2 levels go up like the last time he will be re-intubated. Surgery has still not been able to take place on his hand, but his body is way too weak to handle that right now anyway.
Thank you for all of the prayers and well wishes. I’m afraid there is no way I’ll be able to e-mail everyone back, but know that I have read and will continue to read all of the well wishes that were sent to me. We all appreciate it.
