Lungs doing great
cognatively doing well
no dialysis today
Left arm inside catheter site has minor infection
Throat still hurts from intubation
only wants ice and soft foods
Minor scrape on one foot, but seems to be OK
PT started today, but is very very limited... he's EXTREMELY weak
Will likely be in for a while
He's down to 132kg, but it was mostly his muscle he lost
His belly is still big.
Very afraid to go back to the nursing home for fear they'll kill him
still pending medicaid processing - Jenn to follow up on Monday
Jenn is going to meet with the director of the home.

i'm very, very happy to hear good news on his lungs and his cognition. Especially his cognition.


still rootin' for him!

Re: root, root root for the home team

:) Thanky. I need to go see him tomorrow, but not sure yet.

Don't know what the issue is, but I hope things are on the upswing with him.

kidney failure a week or so ago and he became catatonic due to nursing home neglect. Didn't eat/drink for a week and they didn't call us.

And thanky, we're happy he's doing better. We were worried about death, or worse, permanent cognitive loss; however, it looks like now it's just physical therapy time. :)

Glad to hear it. Hope things continue to improve.


sounds better.

why KG's?
