I just talked with the nurse at Willow Wood. She said Dan was doing well today and had been much quieter. I took that as "he hasn't demanded as much attention today." I asked her if she thought that he was quieter because he wasn't in as much pain as before and she said she thought so. Good news.
She said that the therapist had him up on his feet for a while today. Maybe not too long, but long enough for her to see him that way. Progress!
I didn't get to talk to him because he was resting but that's good, too.
I asked her if he had walked to the phone yesterday or if they had put him in a wheel chair to get there. She said that he was in a chair. I appreciate the fact that they would take the time to get him into a chair and bring him to the phone just so I could talk with him. I know it's not much, but it means a lot to me.
Today I'm one day closer to seeing him on Friday. YEAH!!
