The new medication of the day, actually yesterday is working very well. Dad has more energy and was perky enough for a short walk around the unit. We walked out side to a small planter garden so he could touch and feel the foliage and rub his hands in the dirt, it's his way to reconnect himself with the outside world and disconnecting himself from the sterile one he temporarily calls home. He has just finished lunch and is now sitting up in bed reading, I'm sure a short nap will follow.
Earlier we went through the blog together so I could show him how it functions. He is very pleased with all of the comments and pictures , he is truly touched and thanks you all. We watched a You -Tube video of him telling the funniest story he ever heard. After all these years this is the first time he has ever seen himself
perform, he found himself entertaining.
Joanna took a drive back up to Nevada city to recharge her batteries and take care of few things.
she is a tremedously solid person as we all know but the long stints in a hospital taker they're toll on the strongest of people. It is very hard to pull yourself away from the people you truly love and care about but in order to help Utah stay healthy and strong we must inturn keep ourselves healthy and strong, it's not a race it's a marathon.
As for For me, while dad sleeps I am perfectly content and enjoy talking to all of you.
P.S. The best feature of the Cathedral Hill Hotel is it's proximity to Tommy's Joynt, just next door. Bar-B -Que Turkey ,yum,yum it sure bets hospital food.
