Following the what has now become our standard routine. Joanna and I eased our way into the day with good conversation a cup of tea and the steady diet of hotel buffet breakfast. It's very odd, when your world narrows down to a defined routine of get up, eat, make phone calls go to the hospital,blog all the the things people do every day when their loved ones are are ill, you find simple and trivial ways to break up the routine. For instance you count things, there are seven steps to each set of stairs and there a four sets of stairs , twenty eight stairs in all between the floors of the hospital. I've counted four different types of hospital beds and a million shades of wall paper. Even when driving to the hospital I find myself taking roads that I have know idea were they go just to see if they go anywhere, you get the point.
This morning dad looks well, he did get some sleep through out the night and after a bath and some chow he's ready to forge on. His improvement is slow but he is steadily improving and hopefully will return home soon. You can all take comfort in the fact that he is getting the best care anyone could ever hope for. I will add more after the doctor s make their rounds.
I have been thinking about the direction an true purpose of this blog beyond keeping in touch with the outside world . It occurred to me that, obviously I know my father and you all know my father but we really don't know each and this seems like a good way to get to know each other.
Please do feel free to post what ever you want, I look forward to meeting you all if not in person in cyber space.
