He looks good!  There is some color in my dad’s face and his mind is thinking well.  Some nausea, but that can be expected after surgery.

Dad hospital july 29 2008  

Yesterday I drove to Saskatoon in the late afternoon and spent about an hour with dad.  He talked of a Scrabble game he is part of online, about some visitors who had dropped in, and about how he was feeling.  He dangled his legs over the bed today, sat in a wheelchair and got some rest.  Overall the signs are good, says his nurse.  In a few days he’ll probably be transferred back to Rosetown  where he will do physio and recovery.

That’s a good start!
