Dad is at home now and after an initial rough evening is doing as well as can be expected. He is eating, resting and enjoying being home.
While I stayed with dad in the hospital room I realized how important quality pastoral care really is. I also realized how important it is to respect people's space and time while visiting. I am a pretty quick visitor when it comes to visits but I may even speed it up a bit more.
Treatments for Pop start in the middle of this week. I know they will knock him for a loop and tire him out, but I hope they are able to shrink the tumors and perhaps even knock them out.
