Eric had another quiet night of healing. His breathing continues to improve. The doctor came in this morning, furthur decreased some settings on the ventilator, and said he'll be taking the breathing tube out "in a day or two." Incredible! Three, four days, a week ago, I never dreamed Eric would start to recover so quickly. God is good. Physical therapy has already been here and will come back again this afternoon, so Eric is gaining his strength back. And he's been complaining he's hungry, despite his tube feedings. I know he can't wait to get off the ventilator just so he can eat. And talk. Communication has been frustrating to him. Please pray there'll be no setbacks. Coming off the ventilator will be the hugest step in Eric's recovery. Thank you so much for your continued prayers.
