one step forward

. . . two steps back.  That describes the last six weeks or so.  Every time Dad seems to be doing better, there is a setback.  Back and forth between the rehab center and the hospital, many doctors appointments, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, blood tests, x-rays, MRIs, CTs, ECGs, EEGs, and more doctor speak than you can imagine.

Tuesday night I took him back to the ER and, well, it’s just not looking good for our hero.  Talked to one of the doctors today and there is a lot of ‘if’ going on.  IF this medication works . . . IF his kidneys . . . IF his heart . . . IF we do dialysis  . . . IF IF IF . . .

Monday, Hannah will be starting school at a local Montessori.  She has been yanked around so much lately and it’s hard to homeschool when you aren’t actually home.  She is excited and having both kids in school during the day will make things a little easier with Dad’s health.

I found out my cousin’s wife if pregnant with triplets.  I have plans for Triplet Surprise Sweaters.  Three coordinating BSJ’s in Baby Ull.  It will be interesting to see if I can finish them before the babies arrive or at least before they are released from the hospital.  I think these will make for good hospital knitting while sitting by Dad’s bedside.
