Another Surgical Procedure

My dad had three minor surgical procedures on Wednesday. He received a tracheotomy so the ventilation tubes could be removed from his throat and lungs and connected to the trachea. A feeding tube was inserted to provide better nutrition. And the location of the tube that facilitates dialysis was moved to a different location.

I am excited to report that he is showing signs of improvement. After speaking with both the doctor and nurses responsible for his care at St. Elizabeth Medical Center, Walter has been following simple commands. There is now hope for recovery, although it may take months. Prayer and faith works.

We plan to take Muddear over to see him this weekend.
