So happy to report that my Father got discharged from the hospital today. It's been a long 10 days. It has taken a lot out of him......he went sound asleep in his new chair (Thanks Roseanne and Linda) :-) as soon as he sat in it!
The plan? As of now, as long as things stay stable, he will return to the hospital in 6 weeks for surgery. We have , in my opinion, the best surgeon for the job, and have complete faith in him. He couldn't be in better hands.
Thanks for all of the thoughts, prayers, and good wishes.
