PostHeaderIcon 48 Hours

Last night, as I went to bed early (after sleeping all afternoon), the latest news was that Dad was sitting up in bed eating dinner.

Calling in this morning, we're told that he's had his breakfast and stood up for the first time.

As soon as the room is ready for him, they'll move him out of ICU and into a regular hospital room for the next few days. At this pace, he could be released as early as Tuesday morning.

And for those that were wondering, the patient that preceded Dad into the operating room for emergency surgery is still in ICU but doing fine -- so two happy endings at this point.

I expect to do a few more updates on this topic until Dad gets to go home for recuperation -- but only a few. Back to recipes and politics!

Update: as of 2:00 this afternoon, Dad's out of ICU and into a private room for the rest of his recovery stay.
