    My father in law had major diabetes. He also had a trach due to his sleep apnea. He was a huge man and didn't take care of himself which would have lessened his diabetic troubles. Hopefully your father will take care of himself and this will pass so that you have many more years together.

    Just came on to update...Mr Glenn is doing OK. He was moved to a better hospital thankfully. Doctors there decided he didn't need a tracheotomy, at least not so quickly! He was alert but super tired and the muscular twitching was obvious whenever he dozed off. He doesn't have much feeling in his feet, but the doctors expect that to improve with physical therapy. Certainly no problems with his brain! He was stubborn as hell! Gave me a laugh...he told his wife she was welcome to leave anytime she wanted- apparently he has his eye on a particular nurse! On my way home now. Well, at an airport hotel in Atlanta. *waving to Maura!

    Well, I just spoke to my Dad. Apparently, he is making rapid improvement. He is being moved to a rehab center in our hometown! Only five or six days ago he was on the verge of a coma and organ failure...now, he is expected to be 'on his feet' within the week. It makes my heart happy to know this and for you guys to express such concern for all of us who need a little support! Thanks from me AND my family!
