Return to the hospital

Tuesday, I visited Dad and stayed over until Wednesday when Lou and Amy arrived. There were some good moments. Dad and I went for a ride in the car to see his farm. We also had a sweet visit with Aunt Mable.

Overall, we were disheartened by our visits. It seems that Dad is not getting better. Dad has some confusion, loss of appetite, increased weakness, more pain, inability to complete his rehab sessions and uncharacteristic sadness.

Today Dad was taken from the rehab center to the hospital--ICU. Dad's doctor told Kay that Dad may not get better. Donna is with Dad and Kay and we will get a report later. We are praying that Dad will sense the presence of God. We also pray that he can be comfortable--without fear or pain.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles . . . 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
