Here is the patient:
He was actually sitting up eating, but I got him to lie back down and pretend to read for the picture. Dad is the only person I know that puts on regular clothes to go to the hospital. I sure had my cotton sweats on. But, he always looks nice!
All of the nurses and volunteers were so nice and helpful. They even have a little room with snacks and drinks for the patients. Dad is a huge fan of the grape juice and graham crackers! I am, too! Neil said I was way too impressed with the snack room! All in all, it was a nice, relaxing day. Although we wish we would have been doing something different, it went better than we expected.
The next day, Dad had his feeding tube placed. This was a 20 minute surgery that went very well. He does not have to use it until he wants to. He was not excited that it was a little more bulky than they let on...but if it keeps him healthy...we are all for it!
