I would say:
私の父は一週間前に退院しました。今、彼はリハビリセンターにいます。

Two additional things:
私の父 is redundant since 父 already means your own father. 彼 is not normally used in reference to your father, and it's not needed anyway because the subject is understood, so it can just be dropped from the second sentence.

New Sentence:

荊妻が勉強したいを日本語です。

I'm trying to say, "I want my wife to study Japanese with me." The 'with me' part has completely stumped me.

I can't resist giving this a shot... how's this look?
家内が私と一緒には日本語を勉強してほしいです。

I still don't know how to say "to want someone to do something", but isn't 家内【かない】”politically incorrect”? And should 妻【つま】be used instead? I can never remember this straight ... :oops:

Sairana's doesn't look bad, here's an alternative.
家内から私と一緒に日本語を勉強してもらいたい(です)。

家内 is still used, although some people prefer 妻.

Well there are a lot of words for wife 妻、家内、奥さん、嫁 etc. that aside I would translate the rest of the sentence as:

奥くさんに僕と一緒に日本語を勉強してほしい。
The basic pattern is personにverb〜てほしい。

You could be a little politer and say personにverb〜してもりたい
or personにverb〜していただきたい
そうだ、嬉しいんだ、生きる喜び!

Here I go again with another round!

私の町にあまり日本人が住んでいませんから、日本語を話すのは難しいです。

I'm trying to say "Since there are few Japanese people that live in my town, it is difficult to learn to speak Japanese.
