Context: Your father was in the hospital for a week and was released 3 three days ago. You went to visit him the day of his release. I called you 3 days after the release to see to how he's doing. So what is the normal way of saying: How's your father (doing)? I think of only two: X-さん、お父さんは元気ですか？ X－さん、どうはお父さんですか？ Is there a better way to say that?
