So, to start off, I talked to dad today and things are still going back and forth. As of now:
- They're leaving him at the rehab place to get as much physical therapy as he can get done given his blood pressure issues. There is some hope that changes to medications may be helping with that. If necessary, they're going to do more tests, but not likely through French Hospital. Apparently they've ruled out Marfan's.
- He has moved to room 210B and flowers / cards / limited amounts of junk food (yes, I'm being the mom) are welcome there. Interesting magazines, etc. would likely be well received. Address is: 1425 Woodside Drive San Luis Obispo, California 93401. Phone: (805) 543-0210
- In addiiton to all the medical specialists, he will be chatting with other professionals in the building (therapists, psychiatrists, etc.) to see if there are other contributing factors. He has agreed to keep a list of everyone he's talked to and he and I will compare notes every day or so. As we've discovered, one challenge is always getting all the doctors on the same page.
That's about it for now. I will update here whenever I can and will give posting rights to anyone who asks for it. We can reduce e-mails and be sure information gets out to everyone.
