We made it safely to Washington, D.C. I am happy to report that my Dad is doing better than expected. He is even sitting up in a chair and taking short walks with assistance. We will not know if the medications work for months. However, doctors now think he has a higher chance of survival than they predicted last week. We do not know whether he will be going to rehab or directly home yet. Please keep him in your prayers. He has a very long road ahead. A little compliment to my kids. They sat on the floor in a tiny corner of the hospital room for hours each day without complaint. They have been brave and well-mannered troopers.
