He is still struggling thru his storms and tremors and sometimes sweating profusely. He is still being fed thru the stomach tube inserted near his belly button. He is working on swallowing ice and thicker fluids but while he is improving they are still a struggle. Some days the margin between exhilaration and despair is very thin.
His dog Sundance, now a certified Therapy Dog, visited him and interacted some. It was a great moment but Forrest was very tired at the end of the day. Sundance decided it was worth the 11 hour trip down just to cuddle up next to Forrest and get a head pat and have Forrest drop a ball for him.
So Sundance and I watch him doze off and I read him some Winnie the Pooh, still a favorite of ours and we hope he has a quiet night.
Dad, Sundance and Team 44
