Still in limbo, but Jeremy is holding his own today and they are weaning him off the drugs so that he is more aware of his surroundings. He is still not off the breathing tube but they are hoping that by tomorrow he will be able to breathe on his own. The trauma surgeon is pleased with things so far. His wife is staying with him 24/7 and she is 5 mo pregnant so keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
We are still feeling really bad that we can't just head up north to be there for support. Hard to be a caregiver and not able to go at a moment's notice. Not quite how we pictured our retirement.
Dad has been having some rough days so not sure what is going on there. He may be reacting to our problem. Sometimes if he feels he isn't getting enough attention, he is like a child and does something to make us notice him.
I have been so down and not walking so must make myself get out there tomorrow and do it. I at least haven't eaten everything is sight which would have been my old idea of coping with a stressful situation!
