Hi all - greetings from hot and humid Houston. Dad is doing much better and looks to get out of the hospital and into a rehab facility early next week. They are just waiting for his Cumadin levels to increase. He is more active and alert and eager to get stronger. His spirits are good and he is thinking about where to go next after rehab. He is still having trouble coughing and clearing is throat but the doctors think he is fine for now and that they will follow his progress and see if anything needs to be done to his throat after he is out of the hospital. He can use his cell phone so feel free to give him a call at 617-835-5864.
