Finally out of ICU


So dad was moved to a general ward last night after being in ICU for about two and a half months. That was a shock to his system. No more one-to-one nursing!!!!! He seemed happy though - seems cruel he is with three other people who can eat and drink and he is still nil by mouth and desperate for just a glass of water. His kidneys have stabilised and medically he is doing well - its just a long road ahead of physio to get stronger. They said they hoped he would be out by Christmas - can't believe only 5 days ago we were told he only had weeks to live.
