I was able to spend he night in the room with Dad. (Thanks to Dianne, one of the night ICU nurses, for providing me with an exemption and a recliner.) Dad was peaceful in his sleep and I held his hand when he woke up. He wants so badly to speak and I kept having to ask him to be patient until we can take the tubes out this afternoon. Scott and Karen are with Dad now. Cecelya is nearing St. Louis. I am going to try and sleep for an hour or so. Please keep praying for Dad and all of us. Thanks to all of you who have mailed notes.
