DAD comes home today...Friday the 19th....

they pulled the tube. Both docs said he could come home...they also told him ..if this happens again....they will have to bring him back and stick another tube in him. There is nothing else they can do for him.

So I think they said that the last time...and then they did stick the tube in again....but also sprayed his lung twice....so maybe that is the max number of times? I don't know. Hopefully will find out more later.

I just got home, unwrapped the new laptop and typed this message. I hope to do more later when I feel better. It was quite an ordeal.

Hi Melinda,
Thanks so much for helping us to keep tabs on your Dad so we knew what was going on.

Hi Abe!
It is SO GOOD to know you are home; and with a new laptop to type a little note. Take your time getting back online - rest and take care of yourself.
Blessings,
