Monday

So Mom calls Doug, as I'd sent out an e-mail update on Dad to some relatives and church and such, IRL people, adding a line about Doug at the bottom.  Oops.  Ah, well, so now Mom knows about Doug, too.  And, she called Doug, and they had a good talk.  I'm real glad about that, actually:)  I felt that it'd be best, for them both, if my mother knew of Doug's accident, yet, he asked me specifically not to tell her.  I was torn, but decided that I needed to respect that if realistically possible, so I tried to.  Even if she felt Doug should be doing more for Dad right now. 

And, my dad?  He's continuing to do great, continuing to lose excess fluid, and feeling better and eating more every day.  He is still in the ICU, but, that's due to insufficient beds in the "regular" hospital bed areas.  I'm okay with that reasoning:)  He's getting excellent care right where he is.  Even if he doesn't need it to this extent, I'm not complaining.
