David is amazing
David is doing very well. Yesterday morning the
doctors took the respirator off and by the afternoon
he had the oxygen mask off. He is able to speak to me
and says he feels like he got hit by a truck. He is
doing remarkable for what he has been through. They
even had him up and out of bed late in the afternoon.
He wasn't very steady on his feet and it took a lot
out of him to stand up. When he was back in bed he
said to the nurse, "wow, that was great, I feel like I
just ran the marathon." He is expected to get out of
bed again today and walk alittle. AMAZING!
His coloring is already looking much better. He is
starting to get his pinkish glow back instead of the
Homer Simpson yellow. His eyes are swollen and when
he asked the nurse about it she said, "the whites of
your eyes are swollen", David said, "the WHITES of my
eyes? I love that expression".
Doctors say he will stay in ICU for another 3 days or
so and then transfer to a regular room. He just might
be home for the New Year, but we are just so happy
that he got his Christmas miracle and we are taking
one day at a time.
Love to all,
