My dad had a setback tuesday evening, thankfully it was a small one and we caught it soon enough so that it didn't end up being major. But about 2 1/2 hours after he ate, he vomited, and it got into his lungs. He started to get pneumonia, but by my staying there all night, suctioning everytime he coughed, we beat it and he didn't get worse, he didn't get a fever, and he didn't lose ground in therapy. Looks like he might get to come home next tuesday, but he will still need 24/7 nursing care. Since his insurance won't cover it, guess who is going to be doing it.
