Big news... Dad came home from the hospital today! He is such a trooper. A few days ago the doctors put a PEG feeder into his stomach to feed him when he needs it (i.e. if he starts having trouble swallowing). He's not allowed to start on solids for a few days (until they put his valve back in so he can speak), but once he is allowed to swallow, the PEG will only be there in case he needs it (he won't have to use it).
Dad is tired but he's good. I'll continue to let you all know what the go is. We've got Dad's twin sister Barb over here at the moment, so he's really enjoying the company (not to mention someone to stir constantly!). I love family visits! :)
Keep safe, be happy and always smile.
