Sorry its been so long since a post. I (being Matheus) had to work through the weekend and Elanor had the smalls. As to Wormy we have improvements. I spent about an hour at the hospital this evening and saw and was told a few new things. First, he was awake and aware for the entire time I was there. Second, the doctors are looking at taking him off the ventilator tomorrow if he can pass the little breathing test they have for him. He is currently only being given 6 breaths by the ventilator each minute(I understand that he is breathing @ 15 times a minute on his own). Third, he has lost 10 kilos over the weekend. That may not sound good until you realize that over the last 3 weeks he went from a weight of @ 70 kilos up to 95. (thats a jump of 155lbs to 210). He is now back down to 85 kilos(185lbs). Its all fluid weight from the IV's and such. On the whole, while a little groggy and highly irritated at not being able to talk past the naso-gastric and ventilator tubes, he acted much
like the Wormy we've all been worried about.
Hoping to have more good news soon,
Make a joyful noise unto your Kingdom!
