Update on my Dad

I have good news about my dad.  He's come to and has been transferred to a rehab facility.  He needs to gain back his strength and will need help walking for a little bit.  He's going to have to practice walking with a cane again...not his favorite thing!

Even better news is that we have a diagnosis!  It has to do with his liver.  He has cirrhosis due to all his medical issues.  If too much bacteria builds up in his liver he becomes unresponsive.  So we need to make sure he's drinking enough water and keeping the bacteria levels low.  Mom & I are happy to know that we now know what we can do to help keep this from happening again.

Thank you for all your prayers!  My mom and I greatly appreciate it.
