Today we had some positives on The Father front. He calls me “The Kid,” so I think “The Father” is a good blog nickname.
He successfully weaned from blood pressure medication. His BP had been deadly low when he was admitted on Saturday. My acupuncturist would say that his Qi is becoming stronger. I think the Western medical explanation for this is that The Father’s piss and vinegar is returning.
He is no longer sedated. He’s responding to some things, like getting the wedding ring off his swollen finger <<wince>>. But he is still keeping to himself. Nobody’s concerned about the pace. We’re just waiting. I agree with a family friend: he’s recovering from a lifetime of night owl-itis, in addition to sleeping off this infection.
All his scans, x-rays, tests, monitoring of organs, etc., etc. are good.
