Good spirits

Diane’s dad has been transferred to a regular room; they’re running tests and have had specialists in to see him. He says he’d feel much better if he could cough something up (wait till he sees the bill!). They’re letting him walk around in the hospital, which sounds encouraging, but he said that he’s likely to be there for a few days.

Evening update

Diane spoke with her Dad this evening, and he’s feeling much better but is still coughing a lot. He’s using a breathing mask of some sort which is helping; the specialists are still visiting, but they haven’t figured out what’s going on yet, and they don’t want to let him go while he’s still coughing, so he’s probably got another few days to spend in the hospital. And we reached her brother, who’s on vacation, and gave him the news.
