Back in KL today to visit my dad. I went back to Ipoh on Tuesday cos now I have to do the rounds of taking my brother Tristan to school and back. Since he finished early on Fridays so we drove down in the afternoon and went straight to the hospital.

Dad is looking great today. He was sitting in the armchair looking out the window when we arrived. All the tubes except 1 have been removed and he's now mobile. Food intake has been 'upgraded' to 'soft foods' but I don't think he likes it too much. It actually looks like baby food to me.

He showed us his scar from the surgery and it was about a foot wide across his lower abdomen. wow. Very nice and tidily stitched up though. Dad is enthusiastic about getting discharged on Monday, but we'll have to wait and see what the doctor has to say when the time comes. I think he's getting sick of staying in the hospital. Mom says he's always complaining to her. I don't blame him... hospitals are such boring, dreary places.

Dad's Looking Good
