February 16,


I got to the hospital around nine this morning , dad looks very good. The doctors are starting the process of reducing the number of meds he is currently receiving. The nurses are also reducing his bottled oxygen intake so he won't have to use extra oxygen at home. His conversation is such that the nurses need to keep on their toes or they to get sucked into a long story that leaves them scratching their heads, we have all been there, it is a very encouraging sign.
He sat in his chair for a spell and listened to KUSF"S audio stream of the Metropolitan Opera on my lap top, it was a sight to see.

Dad is going to try and get in touch with Chris tonight or tomorrow and do another podcast on his web site utahphillips.org. There is a link to his web sight on right margin of this blog page.

He is feeling well enough I think I will drive up to Nevada City today for the Chtautaugua show.
I hope to see some of you there.

Great to hear that progress is being made.
I had a Dr's appt. this week and he said that I might be diabetic.
Well, I might not.
He said that my BP was a little high and I might have to be treated for high blood pressure.
I might not.
Then he asked me to have a colonoscopy. So I guess that he's going to stick it to me one way or another.
Y'all keep on fighting the good fight and I'll do the same.
