Tuesday Morning: Day 11

Dad's new 7th floor medical team arrived bright and early to find mom curled up in a sleeper chair by Dad's bedside.  They discussed plans for his current medications and weaning him off of oxygen.  He has started doing a bit of walking to the bathroom with a walker and physical therapy walked with him this morning.  At this time the goal is to build up his endurance and conquer a few stairs to simulate the ones we have at home.  He has been doing amazingly well, been in high spirits and we are quite proud of him.  He as also continued to express his gratitude for all of your prayers, encouraging messages and letters.  Hopefully we can even make it home in time for our scheduled cider pressing.  What a miracle!  Will update again soon.
