Dad is MUCH more himself this morning.  They supported his heart rate with dopamine last night, but stopped it early this morning, and he is successfully pumping his heart at a decent rate on his own now.  The antibiotics appear to be doing their thing, as his white count is down, as well.

They did a chest CT this morning, and and echo of his kidneys.  There’s a heart echo that is to happen in a little while.  They want to watch him for the afternoon, and depending on how that goes, he might be released tonight.
