All kinds of tests have come back with encouraging results.  We are waiting on some blood cultures, but otherwise, Dad looks good. He’s tired, because it’s hard to get more than a catnap in with all the interruptions.

They did a brief evaluation of Dad’s mobility.  It’s pretty terrible – he has lost some strength and some balance. It’s helpful that he, too, understands how limited he is right now.  A PT evaluation has been ordered, and we will await those recommendations.  This evaluation may push his release to tomorrow, and he may be released to a skilled nursing facility to build up his strength rather than to home.

We will keep you posted!
