Update


My father came home yesterday, against doctors wishes. But he said they weren't doing anything for him, and he was just wasting away in the hospital. I wondered if he was making the right decision. Preliminary results are that he did. In the hospital for eight days, he didn't walk 20 steps. At his home, he has done more than that in an hour. In the hospital he looked like he was at deaths door, at home he has perked up, been very talkative, and watched most of the football game last night. I know it's early yet, but once again, I needn't have questioned his decision. Thank you all for your kind comments and continued thoughts.

Cool to see your using a run log. I used to keep mine in a book, but never really kept up with it. I like being able to see the full month, gives you good perspective on what your actually doing.
