Infectious

Yeah.  Another day, another infection -- this one yesterday's, apparently.

Dad now has some form of thing going on with his blood.  He's also getting weaker while they work out what it is and what to do about it.  Part of the reason for that is of course that they've popped in a new main line, this time in his neck, but while they make sure they did that right he's not hooked up to the IVs or his pain button.

He's still entirely lucid, though, and their chilled mattress appeared to be doing something towards reducing his temperature.  It's good something they did was having some effect, because it was maddening to overhear the nurses in the background asking questions and taking no action...
