Dad is in a comma. The neurologist gives a reasonable optimistic forecast but if there is a recovery it will be Tim Johnson-style, very slow. On the plus side he is beginning to breathe on his own.
Dad is in the comatose body though. He shows signs of relief when I rub his feet. He shows clear signs of discomfort as his body "jumps" when it coughs. He will tear up sometimes when he hears mom or me. Removing the tears from his face has to be the hardest thing I ever done.
Keep praying. Thank you for all your support.
