I just talked with my Dad on the phone. I must say, it was wonderful! He is his old self. He was joking about how bad the food is, and how he wants to go home! As sick and out of it as he was, I was not sure I would ever get to talk like that with him again. Thank God he has at least his mind back. But he needs his strength back too. And that may take some time. He isn't at all happy about staying in the hospital.
