Back Home

Sorry I didn't get a chance to post, but dad did make it back home on Tuesday evening.   He's back on antibiotics and all is going well.  We're all hoping this round of antibiotics will work and then he will remain infection-free for a while.  He needs to stay home, because it's way too cold outside for a man who wears a gown!  :)

Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving was wonderful  We all made a trip to Grandma's.  Dad was treated to a a few ounces of clear chicken soup, but the rest of us ate his share of other foods.  Dad and Karl even worked in a game of dominoes.  Dad said sitting at the table was uncomfortable, but luckily he got good hands and was able to beat Karl pretty quickly.  :) 

It's unfortunate that after such a great holiday weekend there would have to be another bump in the road, but today Dad is in the El Campo hospital getting antibiotics.  He just recently finished the last round of antibiotics, but it appears he has some sort of infection that's causing him to run fever.  ECMH is doing some tests and administering antibiotics.  His stay there should be fairly short, probably just until antibiotics can be ordered and received for mom to administer at home.
