One of the most frustrating things about my experience with Dad was the roller coaster aspect of it all. I would tell people, "He's really getting better this time!" only to call 24 hours later and tell them to come say their goodbyes.
So, with that in mind ... I have good news. My uncle is improving. I went up to see him after work last night and he looked a world better. They were able to pull quite a bit of fluid off him ... plus they got the ventilator out and he's breathing on his own again. It's a small step ... but every little bit helps.
He's not out of the woods ... in fact, I'd say he's still ass deep in saplings at this point. There was a massive amount of damage done to his heart and he's very, very weak ... but ... he's alive.
Baby steps, folks ... baby steps.
Well of course there is
