Many of you have kept track of my Dad since his brain surgery for Parkinson’s disease back in August. I very much appreciate everyone’s concerns and emails. As you know his recovery didn’t start out well. My short trip to New Hampshire to be with Dad where the surgery took place turned into an extended worrying visit. Well good news. About two weeks ago Dad woke up. He literally snapped out of his disoriented state of mind. Although he remains in a rehab nursing home he has called me three times. He sounds fantastic! Best of all, his Parkinson’s symptoms seem to have improved. There’s a chance he will be returning home soon.
