Though still very ill, Dad continues his slow improvement. Over the weekend, they were able to reduce or eliminate the medications he received, his fever lessened, his heart rate stayed regular, and his kidney function started to return to normal. Today they were able to take an X-ray or two, though I’ve not heard yet about the results.

This is a marathon, not a sprint, so Dad’s looking at a number of weeks yet before he leaves the hospital. He’s still very sick and there’s a lot of distance between here and there, but things are trending in the right direction.

Again, our deepest thanks to everyone for their thoughts and prayers.
