Thanks for the update, Dawn.

I was looking for this thread to check but lost it and gave up.

Somehow it was moved away from regular forum posts into stickies.

Thanks for the update, Dawn. Best wishes.

You're in my thoughts. I know you said you don't have a good relationship with your father (I have the same type of relationship with mine), but hoping he pulls through this and your stress level goes back down.

They have removed sedation but he's still on the ventilator. He opened his eyes for a few seconds at the sound of my brother's voice, but is asleep again. We are just waiting now. Thank you all for your continued prayers and warm wishes.

Quick update. He showed some brief periods of lucidity last night. He seemed to know who I was and nodded when I asked if he wanted his wife to come in to the room (he was sleeping, so she went to the waiting room). He's still on the ventilator, but they are saying that if he keeps progressing as he is, slower than they'd like, but in the right order, they may be able to remove the tube tomorrow. We won't really know how he's doing until he can speak, and until further testing is done, since he hit his head and they don't really know his neurological status. They also want to do an angiogram, but he's not stable enough yet.

His wife is disabled and relies on him for a lot, so this is even harder on her than it might otherwise be. She's hanging in there, and her kids are helping her out right now. I'm going home now since she's got a good support system in place. My brother's going to stay at least the rest of this week, too, and will update me on any changes.

I'm at peace with whatever happens, but would appreciate any good thoughts for my brother and my step-mother. They need it more than I do. Thank you all so much.

I am thankful that you are at peace with whatever the outcome. It is a show of your kind and loving heart to be able to put aside your personal feelings and show such strong support of your stepmom and your brother. They are lucky indeed to have you, Dawn.

Good thoughts and prayers for each of you continue.

All your prayers have worked! Today (probably because I left yesterday, of course), he's alert, oriented, was extubated, is eating, joking, telling stories, and has solved one side of his Rubik's cube (he can do the whole thing in his sleep, practically, so while that's "good" it's not his "normal"). The CT showed he had a small pulmonary embolism. He's stable enough now for the angiogram, so we'll know more about the state of his heart and blood vessels after that's done.

That's simply amazing, Dawn! Maybe it was because you were there, that he wanted to recover--not that you are gone now. I am continuing to keep you and your family in my thoughts.

Oh, that is so good! I'm glad he is improving! (My grandfather was one of the inventors of the Rubik's cube... he could solve it in a few minutes!)

I'm just seeing this now, so I'm glad things are resolving. i can't do a rubik's cube at all, so I'm already impressed.

Relationships with parents can be complicated, to say the least but I'm very glad for you that you went up and saw him, and you feel at peace with everything.

Hugs to you sweetie!
