8am~Mom talked with dad this am. He is still saying he cannot take deep breaths. Nurses are still working him hard on deep breathing. Did not get up in chair during night. Maybe today.
4pm~Dad was sitting up in a chair eating ice cream when Mom, Shaw, and Ry visited him today! He is down to one blood pressure med and they hope to take him off of it soon. He still has fluid in his lungs that they are trying to get him to cough out, but he does not want to cough.
8pm~Dad ate well tonight. :) Even joked around. He sat in a chair a couple times today. He is still in ICU. Hopefully, he will be transferred to a regular room either tomorrow or Tues. Thankful he is realizing that he has to cough.
