Alertness

My father has been more alert than usual these past few days during Lunar New Year and it makes me happy. He pays attention to his surroundings and makes eye contact with everyone. He watches TV and I don't know how much he understands but he has a long attention span. He still coughs and falls asleep a lot though. I would be too if had trouble swallowing and were sedentary nearly all of the time.
