Talked to Dad last night. He was in good spirits. Throat is still on fire. He believes that they might insert the feeding tube on Monday or Tuesday. We touched base with the nurses station and verified that the room could receive flowers. We sent him a spring arrangement and that seemed to perk him up.
The nurse said he was doing much better and is off restrictions. His immune system is in much better shape versus when he entered the facility.
Phone calls and e-mails are good right now....it seems like he is very bored and longs for conversations.
I will be checking on his apartment on Tuesday. Mission one will be to see if anything in the refrigerator is spoiled. Will play it by ear from there.
