Striking

Striking, today’s photo prompt was the perfect word to describe tonight’s sunset.  I was leaving the hospital after visiting my dad so I wasn’t able to get the greatest shot of it but it was gorgeous! This shot is from the parking lot.

My dad is getting better.  Every test is coming back negative.  No explanation for why his fever would drop to 93 degrees.  Perhaps a reaction to medication but they are still not sure.  Now the problem is dealing with his non-working knees.  He had therapy today and will have more tomorrow.  After that, a decision will be made to decide where he will go next.

Ten days is a long time to be away from home and he’s getting stir crazy.  We just have to make sure he is completely ready to leave unassisted before he goes back to his own home.  Fingers crossed that happens soon.

Good News

where i stand

Where I Stand  – tonight’s photo prompt. This is a photo taken on my way into the hospital tonight to visit my dad.  Today we got good news.  His pneumonia is much better and he is off IV medication for it.  The bone scan came back clear and the “spot” they saw and were worried about is nothing of concern. He should be home by the end of the week.  Despite the bitter cold, the sunset tonight was breathtaking and I had to take this shot on my phone. Thank you for all your well wishes.  They worked!
