Dad 10-7-09

The ultrasound showed no vascular problems to his extremities. Thank goodness.

The fluid in his chest is responding well to the breathing treatments.

They are continuing to wean him from ventilator.

They are still working on getting the fluid off of him.

The dialysis has been working well, but they may discontinue it for a little bit to see how he does. As the toxins have left his body, he is beginning to feel more pain unfortunately, or is it fortunately, it is a double sided sword.

Eventually, they will move him from CICU to a rehab unit, not sure when that will be yet.

Thank you for your prayers for my father on his long road to recovery.
