Update On My Dad!

My dad is doing SO MUCH BETTER and we are out of the woods! He has had most of his tubes removed and now just has the IV for nutrients and a wound vac. He also finally is able to have some food for the first time in weeks, clear liquids as in chicken broth, gross green jello etc.
Everything is healing properly and his pain is down considerably! Now just to get him out of that ugly boring hospital and home!
Thanks to everyone for all the prayers, support, food, text, flowers, visits etc. It was unbelievable how Monroeville was all over taking care of him and checking on him. His hospital was 1.5 hours away from Monroeville and they still drove to see about him. SO sweet. Ree Smith, I would like to thank you for the extra 5 lbs I gained from all those Brownies you sent. I am sure Fenn appreciates the extra swimming room. Julie Bray, Thanks for educating me on the wound vac. Having all these nursing friends and family really came in handy!
Up until this point in life, I have really not spent much time in the hospital, so all of that was new to me and I learned a lot, while my dad just about gained a medical degree. I also learned enough to know, if I was picky about our food and diet before, I am about to be a food nazi. I don't ever want to spend any time in the hospital if I can help it. My dad is a very tough, strong, and active dude, and I believe that made his recovery MUCH easier. It is good to be healthy so that in the event of some crazy accident like this, your body has what it takes to fight, heal and recover.
God is Good!
Erik and I are back in Nashville now, reunited with the dog children and getting ready for Bro ( Steven Graham's) wedding this weekend.
