Well, I've been back for a week now, and my dad honestly seems to be noticably, if only slightly, better than last Wednesday night. My stepmom was out running errands when I left today, but I'm going to talk to her tomorrow and see what she thinks is really going on. He's eating and drinking ok (not by himself, needs to be fed, but is taking it ok), the nurses seem pleased with his bp, heart rate, etc.. He talks a bit but not much or very well, really seems like it takes a ton of effort to force out a few words here and there. And then of course it seems he's always wide awake and then I come over and he decides to get sleepy and nap..
I feel like I might think about flying back to California soon.. but I'll talk to my stepmom first, if I could talk to a nurse it might even be better. In the meantime, just aaarrrggghh.
