Hi Marcia

I am in agreement with everyone as far as keeping your dad t home as long as possible but I think while you are up there you should be trying to convince him to come to stay with you. It sounds like a no win situation way up there in the woods. You are away from your husband(hard on him and marriage) You are isolated in case baby or you or dad gets sick (hard on everyone) It doesn't sound like there are medical care facilities anywhere near that would be able to help him if he got pneumonia (a very real possibility) or any other complications from the disease. If you have the room at your place I think it would be better and less stressful on the whole family. Try to explain to him that it is better for him and you and your family. Just another opinion and idea. Hope it works out for you.
Take care. Al.
