Sorry for the lack of updates. Dad's recent improvement has been very gradual but steady. Helen is with him and says that he was restless today, but in a good way. He wants to get out of the ICU and into a rehab facility. We believe we have found the right place and hope to get him there in the next couple of days. He is mostly off of the respirator and is set up with a web cam in case anyone wants to Skype with him (paul.polishuk). Dad still needs to gain more strength and stamina, but he seems up to the challenge. Thanks to everyone for their love and support over the past few weeks.
