Dad is in the hospital here. They seem to have things well in hand. They are treating his Cellulitis aggressively and are doing wound care on his bed sores. He has two that were mostly healed before he and mom went on this trip that have now opened back up a little. They drove over 1,000 miles total and that is a lot of sitting when you can't lift yourself to adjust the way you're sitting. So, the wounds were disturbed some. They also are treating him for a mild UTI (urinary tract infection). Any of those things or the complications that come with them could make him weak, so that is the most likely explanation for why he has no strength in his legs.

It looks like they plan to keep him until at least Monday. He has his regular cell phone with him (765) 247-8149 and I'm sure he would love to talk to you if you have a moment to call. He is in room 326 of the Davis County Hospital in Layton, UT.

They have him on a treatment plan and are shooting for trying to have him well enough to return home by Monday sometime. They are not at all sure though--just a target date. His spirits seem to be better today, though.

Well, that's all I know for now. I will keep you posted. Take care and thanks so much for the prayers. Love you, Nancy
