Dad continues to improve, it now appears sure that he will be released from the Hospital this week. Both infections appear to be under control. Mom says he is in good spirits, and has been sitting up each day. As of last night, he was still receiving antibiotics.
According to media reports, the water in Beaumont is begining to be safe. Officials are saying that the water should be run for 10 minutes before using. Utilities are coming back on line, with Entergy making progress in the city.
However, a different report says that officials are discouraging people from coming back to stay yet. We are still working to determine the status of medical and other services in the area.
Hopefully they will not have to leave the hospital until it is clear to return to Beaumont. However, it’s a guessing game at this point.
