I haven't been updating about dad 'cause there isn't all that much to tell.

In the past week, he:

had the ventilator removed
was put on a BiPAP (think mega-oxygen mask) as his Ox Sat continues to sort of suck
continues to be confused, sometimes very
had a swallowing evaluation scheduled (don't know if they every got to do it, because...)
seems to have aspirated
seems to have developed pneumonia again
was put back on a ventilator

That last bit brings you up to today. My mom is, understandably, upset. My sister has been a wonder. My brother probably feels as helpless as I do. I need to get back up there, but I don't think I can until next week.

*sigh* This is shaping up to be a hell of a slog.

I want to thank you all so very, very much for your prayers and blessings and love and support. Don't feel you need to comment every time I post an update; if you want to, that's lovely and very, very welcome, but I will not be slighted in the least if you just read this, nod, and continue on. Don't worry. I know you're there, and I know you are all continuing to send good thoughts. And it means the world to me, and to my Mom and the rest of my family.
