His father is improving in small ways. His attitude has improved. You can tell because he is complaining more and wants to be more active, probably more active than he actually should be. By the end of the week long visit, his dad was looking a lot better. Still his life expectancy is still fairly short.
He's been moved to a nursing home where he can recieve health care and physical therapy, but still be out of the hospital. Everyone is hoping that his quality of life will remain high and that he'll still be able to do the things he enjoys until the end. The quality of care available at the nursing home should help with that. The family gets together for an annual trip to Disneyworld every December, they're hoping he will be around and able to participate.
On the spiritual side, his physical improvement has also helped the families anxiety. They haven't been able to really talk with him about God or salvation though.
We still need to have a clear talk with him about eternity but are hopeful that maybe some of the people at the facility will be able to remind him of God's love so he will be open to hearing about it from us (he thinks we are "brainwashed"), so prayers are still needed on that front -- on all fronts, I guess.More prayer? Its the least I can do.
