He is on oxygen and will be at least until he finishes the brain treatments. He is, and has been, on a strong steroid as part of the treatment protocol for the brain tumors. Dr. Sneed said that, unfortunately, the steroid can, and almost assuredly did, cause Dad's pneumonia. Once he's done with the brain treatments, he will wean off the steroid and start chemo at some point after that. He has an appointment next week with Dr. Sneed to discuss the chemo protocol.
Dad is tired and a little weak, but that's to be expected after a week and a half in the hospital. He says he feels better everyday, and he remains in good spirits.. We, especially Mom, are glad that he is home, and we are grateful for your ceaseless, fervent prayers for Dad and our family!
Every day is a blessing!
