Life is Never Easy - the latest with my Dad - With Update

The ongoing saga of my dad's stroke recovery has been so filled with ups and downs.  We fought so hard to get him approved to return back to the skilled nursing facility after he was taken to the hospital for pneumonia where he almost died.  Now he is going back to the hospital because he is lethargic and unresponsive.  The nurses aren't sure what is going on and he is not his normal self.  He was doing better, on Friday, he did really well in physical therapy and things were looking up.  Now things are uncertain.  I just need prayers and positive thoughts for him right now. 

Thank you everyone for always been so supportive.

Update:

Last night he was released and returned back to his skilled nursing facility at 11:30 p.m.  The doctor felt that it was probably related to the pneumonia he had a few weeks ago since his lungs are not completely clear of the infection.  He was given more antibiotics.  This morning, he is alert and able to do his occupational and physical therapy.  I just hope he is able to stay healthy enough to gain some of his strength back.  Unfortunately with insurance, you never know when they say that enough is enough, he won't benefit from therapy anymore.  If you can continue to pray for his healing , I would so appreciate it.

Thank you!  It is so hard because he has lost 40 lbs and is this small frail man now.  I don't know if he can handle many more set backs.
