Update about dad

Hi Everyone,

Well, after 7 long weeks my dad was transferred to a rehab center yesterday. My grandmother went to see him today and he was on the exercise bike for 6 minutes, and went for a walk. She said he looked great. The staph infection is gone , so now we just need the swallowing to come back, and the bladder control. I am going to see him Sunday so I will let you all know. Has anybody been through along time with feeding tube, trach tube, and cathetar? Any advice? Thanks, Kim

Hi, He was given the IV thing since last weds night, and started his second set today. They diagnosed him last weds. with GBS. I just got word that the hospital couldn’t release him due to his blood pressure being about 200/145. Any support or information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
