Brooke - Tuesday, 11/18 - 10:00 AM
Brooke is still in the Surgical ICU. He is currently fighting some complications in his lungs, fluid build up etc and a fever. He is on a ventilator and groggy from the various drugs, but fully aware and as communicative as can be expected through lip reading, nods and a letter board. Once his lung problems are solved the doctors hope to go ahead and install a trach and remove the mouth tube. The doctors and nurses are doing their best. Yesterday he did indicate that he could feel the nurses touch tests on his hands and feet, we are guardedly hopeful about this. The doctors and staff at the hospital have been wonderful.
