Day 9 – Increased Independence

Quick update on John: he’s totally off oxygen. Breathing without assistance. He still has a feeding tube thru his nose because he can’t swallow. Vision is better and stint has been removed (that drains the fluid). He’s speaking in sentences now and can be understood. He may be moved from ICU in the next couple days. Still not moving left side but doctors say it’s pretty normal. Please say a prayer for swallowing, increased feeling in left side and for the VA to come thru on PT funding.
