Day +25

Dad's doing slightly better today.

His kidney's and liver are still not doing as they should, but the hospital no longer has ICU at Mount Sanai on standby.

He's still really out of it, but he seems to be able to speak a little more. Earlier, as I sat here, he was semi out of it, with his mouth hanging open. Now he seems to be more with it, speaking a little more.

Besides his liver and kidney problems, his blood levels continue to climb. This looks like the bone marrow's really starting to work. It wont really matter, however, if his kidney's and liver don't work.

His sister, Esther, also flew in from Israel and saw him this morning which was nice.

Mom took a leave of absence from work until dad stabilizes.

And that's about it for now~

  2. Our thoughts are with you and your family. Sorry to hear that the nurses are giving you a difficult time. It is important for you to be able to be with your dad at this time.

    Stay strong Love Deborah Barook and girls.
