dad's condition worsened today

My dad's heart stopped today. They were able to start it back up; but he didn't breathe on his own for over an hour. So there is a chance that he could have brain-damage if he makes it through this. They were able to stabilize his condition. We were told that it's very uncertain if he'll make it. Not looking good.

Saw a couple family members I hadn't seen in many years, in the waiting room. Was awkward. Started reading the out of print book, The Consumer, by my favorite singer/songwriter/musician, Michael Gira.

My mom and I checked on dad once more, before her and my oldest sister tried to get some rest after I left. We talked as we approached his bed. His eyes opened all the way, like he heard us, then shut. That happened when I first saw him today too, while I talked with the nurse. Though he didn't raise his head up any the second time. We spoke to him for a little bit. Then I walked mom back to the waiting room with my arm around her. We talked. I gave her another hug; then left. I'll be back there again tomorrow.
