Thank you for your prayers, Jody seems to have turned that corner. His pain is finally down to a minimal level, and his breathing has improved. We are working on weaning his oxygen as tolerated. Today he went for his first walk with the physical therapist and did seven laps around the unit. This is quite an improvement considering just a few days ago he could barely walk the five feet from his bed to his bathroom, and even talking & eating were an effort. Today he also began chest PT’s (the old school kind where a physical therapist physically “pounds” on his chest to break-up the mucous in his lungs to help clear his airways). The doctors have also restarted all of his nebulizer treatments and he continues on IV antibiotics. He has not had any active bleeding since the embolization. Because of all of these improvements, Jody will be moving back to a regular room when one becomes available. It’s great to see him acting more himself. Maybe tomorrow he’ll even be up for a game of Skip-Bo. Thanks again for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers.
