COPD exacerbation

Da was admitted to the hospital last night after several hours of shortness of breath. He's on 10 liters of oxygen with frequent breathing treatments. He's getting steroids and IV antibiotics. His oxygen is good as long as his mask is on. I can tell the steroids are kicking in because he's getting a little froggy... Thinking he can take off his oxygen and walk around. He also is showing a little
confusion which has become pretty common at night lately.  Dad and I are sitting with him to give mom a break. Lisa came up for the day and will return tomorrow after work. 

We are so blessed to have such good friends here and he's had lots of visitors. He is so flirty with the nurses and they all think he's precious.
