This was my dad after his fall eating breakfast in ICU. A lot has happened since then. He did make it through surgery on Sunday and his vitals have been good but the anesthesia was pretty hard on him.
In case you didn't know this he apparently fell in his kitchen after dinner on Thursday evening and broke his hip. He wasn't found until late Friday afternoon. I was trying to call him but he didn't answer. He calls me every morning. Then later my sister who lives here in Florida called and asked if I had talked to him. So she and her husband went over after work and found him on the floor.
So I flew here on Sunday. It has been a rough week. He was very dazed and confused. He got angered and they ended up giving him morphine to knock him out. Well that did at least get him to sleep since he had been up for 24 hours. He has pretty much been living in the 70's most of the week.
As of yesterday morning he pretty much back to himself. He was happy to see him. He ate all three of his meals with help from us. He was moved out of the hospital to a rehab center where he will spend a few weeks getting back up on his feet.
I will keep you posted. This has been very emotional and draining for me. I am with him all day at the hospital. I have not had time to read any blogs but hope to catch up when I get home.
My plan is to go home while he is in rehab and return when he is released to go home or get him set up with assisted living. He is a very independent man at 93 and very stubborn too!
Hope all is well with each of you.......
