Dad is ok as things go. He has been a little more alert these past few days. I took him to see Dr.D. on Friday and was impressed that he was actually awake for the visit. She had us get him some x-rays and blood work. He was too tired to do that on Friday, so Anna, Sara and I did that on Saturday. Dr.D. also said that she is sure that he has had another stroke. Anna and I knew that for a while now. Anna is pretty sure of the exact day and when she talked to me about it, I am pretty sure that was the day too. I don't have the "blue book" with me, but it was the day he went to the hospital in late January.

Dad is contracting in his left arm and left leg. Dr.D. said that is a sure sign of the new stroke. Let alone the fact that now he can't swallow any food anymore and the eye not looking straight anymore was a sure sign for me. Anna and I were also talking about how his personality has changed some too in the past few months. Before he hated to be changed in bed and would get agitated when he needed to poop and wanted to get out of the bed. Now he just sits there and doesn't even tell anyone that he needs changing.

Anyway he is ok. Not bad, but not good either. He is just still not gaining any weight and is probably loosing some too. Dr.D. upped his amount of feedings two weeks ago, and his body is seeming to tollerate the extra liquids.

And some good news for our family.  Andy (Tom's oldest son) is getting married on Dec 15th!  He is marrying a great woman named Quinn.  Andy and Quinn have been dating for quite sometime.  I am not exactly sure how they met, but they both are going/graduated from the University of Chicago.  Quinn is from Seattle, WA.  They plan on getting married on Martha's Vineyard.

Y'all have a great day, 

 Love and hugs,  Mary
