Dad - June 12

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.

Dad - June 5

Hi all,

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.
