Well, today Pop had the ventilator turned off... and got the tubes out of his throat! He was glad to finally be able to talk... to communicate with more than a nod and a blink.
I talked to Mike around 6:00 and he said Pop was eating salmon, mashed potatoes with gravy, green beans and raspberry cheesecake for dinner! Pretty amazing dinner for someone who just mere hours ago was so heavily sedated they couldn't even lift their head!
This is all such good news! We are continuing to pray that he keeps on progressing in such leaps and bounds :)
Thank you for all of your prayers (even if you didn't comment, I have faith that ppl have been reading and praying :) )
