Teeth, Jello and a chair

Things with my dad are improving! All the tubes came out of his mouth so we can understand him a lot better when he talks. He wears full dentures and was able to put his teeth in last night. I fed him a gourmet dinner of Cherry Jello and Chocolate Pudding - he loved both. The nurses got him out of bed and he walked to a chair and sat upright for awhile. He still has no short term memory, but his long term memory is fine. He knows that he had a heart attack, but doesn't remember anything. I told him he was brought to the hospital on a Harley - that made him laugh :)

He may be moved out of ICU today which would be a huge step forward!

So glad you are able to be with him as he recovers.
