Update on Dad

Dad is less responsive to everyone and everything. He is still aware of when they turn in bed, but not much more. He doesn't ask for Mom as he did. The last few times he called her Mommy, and when he held her hand he almost hurt her holding on so tight.

In the last 24 hours they have had 18" of snow, with 7" more due tomorrow. Mom spent last night with Dad and went home for awhile today, after the roads were safe. My brother Wayne cleaned out part of her drive for her. My brother David has been in Wisconsin working and has been driving home with the newest snowstorm stuck to his bumper. Both my sisters are there everyday, and some of the grandchildren that live near drop in often, so Dad isn't alone.

That's all I have for now.
