Tuesday Update On Dad

I had a good talk with Dad this evening. He said the day started slow but really picked up. His back continues to bother him although I take it that there has been improvement. He likes the food at Surrey Place although he fears the stroke- seven weeks ago tonight- has damaged his ability to taste. The most poignant moment this evening when he wished Mom could come visit and that he thinks she misses him as well. I told him about my speaking in chapel today; he hungers for the mundane details of life outside the walls that confine him. Dad's voice and speaking ability are returning, if not to normal, to a place where he can converse without the effort that marked his initial speech. Thanks for your prayers and keep them up!
God bless,
Luke 18:1
