This was a big day for Dad! He was transported back to Surrey Place from his room at St. Luke's in Tom and Sue's van. Since the timing forced him to miss lunch at both locations, they received permission to take him out to eat so Dad dined for lunch at Red Robin. (Apparently, his contagiousness is limited to certain circumstances.) He had a hamburger and a milk shake and he was ecstatic. It's hard for me to realize that he has not been anywhere except the hospital and rehab facility since July 31 with the exception of riding in an ambulance as he was shuffled back and forth. The Simons also drove by the house which really got to Dad. The trees were green the last time he saw them and now they are bare. He told me he needs to get home to rake! The disease specialist, Dr. German, gave him a good report on his heart infection but there is still no certainty on how much damage was caused by the infection. Dad's new room- I think his fifth- at Surrey Place is C-9-Bed 1 and his phone number is 314-542-3409. Please call if you get a chance. I can't begin to tell you how much this means to him! Thanks for your prayers and praise the Lord he had such a good day!
