Just got an update from Topeka: They have removed the chest tube and all that entails has checked out good; catheter is out; they are unplugging everything and preparing to move him out of ICU either tonight or tomorrow. He is eating and drinking. He is sitting in a chair and he WALKED to the chair. Still heavily medicated. They are thinking he will be moved to a KC hospital (probably Menorah) either Tuesday or Wednesday and it may be possible for him to go straight to rehab rather than the hospital. All wonderful news.
He is remembering a lot of the crazy stuff he said when he was in the coma. Ready for the eclipse tomorrow.
Bernie is giving him a 5 or 6 out of 10; he was at 1/10.
Ashley told him she would bring the kids up tomorrow. He and Debbie usually walk the kids to school on the first day of school, so they missed that this year.
Keep on kartin'. llb
