moved to ICU
Dad was moved to ICU late last night. It is a much better atmosphere than the emergency room (he was there for 70 hours). They cleaned him up, gave him a new bed and some new sheets, and replaced his bandages. His temperature has been spiking periodically, but Tylenol and antibiotics have kept the fever at bay. There were moments during all of the moving around last night where it was clear that he was very uncomfortable, but he would simply respond to the requests of the nurses by giving a "thumbs-up". It was hard not to be proud of him.
