Sheila and I are at the hospital this morning, where Dad has improved markedly. The rehab placement has not yet come through, but maybe today. He is out of the bed, and in the chair for his breakfast, literally “sitting up and taking nourishment” to use a favorite phrase of his. Having decided that they have conspired to take all flavor out of eggs at this establishment, he has opted for oatmeal this morning. The oatmeal comes with a cinnamon sugar topping, so there is hope.
