First of all, Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] nurseowens !

Secondly, I am actually feeling almost healthy.  I am afraid to jinx it.  I have even had people come up to me in the last few days and tell me that I look better than I have in months, with color in my cheeks and brightness in my eyes.  That's a good thing, right?  Aside from a little sinus crud, which is to be expected since the weather keeps changing from winter to summer to winter again, I feel good.

As far as my father goes, he is doing better but he is still in the hospital.  His knee doesn't bother him hardly at all, and he has been doing his exercises.  He has finally had bowel movements.  (Sorry, gross I know, but it is a major milestone after surgery.)  He has finally stopped hiccuping, which is a reaction to the anesthetic.  The only thing that he can't do is pee on his own.  They won't let him go home until he can.  His prostate is swollen and preventing him from being able to pee.  They have extracted fluid from him, almost a half a gallon, but he has yet to go on his own.  He is in good spirits and is starting to get antsy about going home, but he is trying to be a good patient for now.  I am feeling better about it all, but I am still worried.  This is the first time that my father has really seemed human.  I guess that every little girl thinks of her father as being a superhero, invincible, and infallible.  I have known for a long time that my father has faults, but his health has always been great.  This is the longest that he has been down for anything health related, even as a child.  That is why it worries me.  I guess that I have to have faith.
