Just a quick note to let you know that Brooke has 'graduated' to the Intermediate care unit, on the 5th floor. This is a temporary stop until he goes to the Rehab unit, sometime later this week.
For those of you wanting to visit, I think they still only allow 2 at a time. And please refrain from visiting if you have a cold, the flu or even the sniffles... his lungs are still very fragile and being exposed to any bug, even the smallest, can cause trouble.
The picture below was taken on his second 'Cadillac' ride, where he was able to sit in the sunshine for a few minutes (granted, it was just in the hospital parking lot, but he still loved it) and listen to Lou B. play 'Amazing Grace' on his harmonica. The skies had parted and he had a nice view of the lake and the mountains. I'm told it was an incredibly moving experience to see him relish in something we take for granted every day.
Again, thank you all for finding your own unique way to keep his spirits up, and keeping mom fed!
