Today was a much better day. Dad was very happy to see I did not return to Idaho. He was much more aware of his surroundings. He spoke to us. And best of all, physical therapy got him to stand and push a walker a few feet. He ate well and I honestly feel today was a turning point for the good. Perhaps Mom and I got the hospital staffs attention yesterday because they gave Dad more help today then he's got all week. Its great and he's on his way. I'm so glad I stayed. I'm now planning to return to Idaho next Tues.
