Update: My family managed to squeak out Christmas despite what's been going on. We just did it very slowly, over three nights. On Christmas Eve, after we got back from the hospital, my brother made a ham and we put up the tree (which ended up taking until 3 a.m.). Christmas Day, we did a turkey dinner, and we ended up opening presents the day after Christmas. (I got a Kindle Fire. Yes, I put Tumblr on it).

The doctors confirmed that my father did, indeed, have a second stroke a couple of weeks ago, and this one affected his ability to use eating utensils. He's relearning that now. But the good news is he no longer has a feeding tube at all (even though he's still eating pureed foods). It's now looking like it'll be another week to a week and a half before he comes home. Also, the cause seems to be equally divided between failure to properly maintain his diabetes and smoking. Needless to say, the residence will be swept of cigarettes and Hostess cakes before he returns.

Oh, and my whole family seems to have caught nasty colds from the hospital. Ironically, American hospitals are the biggest hotbed of communicable diseases there is.
