My dad just called me, and we chatted for 6 minutes! The hospital is waiting for an open bed to transfer him out of ICU.
There is a chance he will be discharged by the weekend, but that is a long way away in hospital time. He is eating solid food for the first time in 5 days. He is sitting up, and he has even started walking around the unit.
Thank you to everyone for the well wishes and prayers. I hardly responded to anyone in the last thread. I was having major issues focusing on anything for a bit.
