Feb. 25,

Utah continues to make headway towards his going home. Instead of arising early he slept until 8:00, the coughing that has kept him up at night has subsided and his spry wit has returned. The doctors will make their rounds at 5:00 p.m. but the word on the floor is that he will be going home tomorrow! Currently he is roaming the halls with Joanna. If he is lucky the door to the physical therapy room will be open, the room has a fantastic view of the bay, stretching from the Golden Gate Bridge to Alcatraz Island.
Thank you, everyone, for the offers of transportation for the ride home. Thankfully because dads condition has so greatly improved I don't think the ride home will be much of an issue. He likely will be most comfortable in his own car. He has come a long way, last week it looked as if there was no end insight and we not even talking about the possibility of going home to actually making plans to do it ( simultaneously everyone please knock on wood )
I have go, I need to track him down so he can take his lunch time meds.

Glad to hear Bruce will be home soon. It's been a long haul but it looks like there is light at the end of the tunnel and it's not the headlamp of an oncoming train!

News lust keeps getting better.
That said, I'll miss checking the blog every day or so.

Good to hear you're headed home. Now, more than ever, the world needs to hear your voice.

Thanks Duncan for keeping us all informed. Hope you found a few good meals in SF. (I always liked the fish and chips and a pint at the Edinburgh Castle down on Geary, but it appears from the website it may have changed hands.)
