As of right now, Bob has been in the hospital twenty days, all in Critical Care (three in intermediate care and one in regular).
He was progressing slowly but well last week and then this last Monday had a heart attack and has been on high oxygen since. He is on BiPAP which forces the oxygen into the bottom of the lungs. He will not stay on this machine more than a few additional days. He recognizes all of us and tries to laugh and communicate in spite of the O2 mask. He continues to move his hands, arms, feet and legs. Once in awhile he shrugs the shoulders or an entire side.
Thank you for the messages, emails, and visits. He can have visitors and shows how delighted when he sees a familiar face. We have read many of your emails to Bob and we can tell it means a lot to him.
