It was 44 degrees and windy when I took Colin out at 8am.
I spent an hour with Bob yesterday afternoon. When I arrived the nurse was getting ready to bathe him and change his gown. We talked as well as interacted with Bob while she took care of him.
Things seem to be slowly moving in the right direction. They had his bed in the chair position and he had been up all morning. He is breathing on his own. The swallowing is getting better. The collar is still on to keep the secretions moist and to protect his airway because he still has the lung issues and the cough. I could understand some of his mouthing, mostly short responses to my questions.
