My dad made lots of progress yesterday. He got his epidural out, his IV out, and he walked some. He hasn’t been able to go to the bathroom yet though, and the icing on the cake is that he has a kidney stone.

That’s not surprising, he’s had them regularly since his early 20’s, and pretty much all the time for the last 15 years or so. Without an IV or epidural it makes for a LOT of pain. He’s scheduled to go home in a day or two, but I really hope he hurts a lot less before they do that.

Both my sisters had to get back to their life up north today, so I may go over and spend some more time with him. We shall see.
