With guarded optimism...

It looks like dad is going to be OK as of this morning. He had a really rough day yesterday as they started weaning him off of morphine, and made him start getting up and moving. He had severe chest and back pains due to the chest compressions they had to perform and the shocking they did on Thursday morning, so that is why he was on morphine. He was up and had breakfast this morning, the first real meal he has eaten since Wednesday just before the heart attack.

Thank you so much for all of your support and prayers! I am sure every little bit helped. I will continue to provide updates as more information comes in. Sometime soon, I'll also give a summary of exactly what happened, because I'm sure some of you may be wondering.

Great news, X. I'm sure he really enjoyed the meal, no matter how crappy hospital food!

Just coming up for air here to see this news -- that your dad went down and is now climbing back up. I am so sorry to hear but happy that things are now getting better. I feel a stab in the chest for him and you because, well, I can say I know your dad, for having hung out with him last 4th of July. Please let your dad know I am thinking of him. You all hang tough.
