Dad will be in the hospital at least until tomorrow. The doctors don't think there's much else they can do for Dad at the hospital, but they want to watch him for at least one more day. There are fewer chances for infection at home, so they don't want him in the hospital if it's not necessary. We'll be having a home safety check soon and possibly get some in-home care for Dad. Dad is to the point where he can't sit up or stand up by himself, and Mom and I are just not strong enough to completely hold up his weight. Hopefully the case worker will have some good suggestions for us around the house and some tools/equipment that will make life a little easier.
