Ferrett is still ventilated and heavily sedated, but he already looks better than yesterday. They don't know when he will be off the ventilator, and they added a nasal tube to drain his stomach, so instead of the "less equipment every time you see him" we actually have more. I count nine--NINE--IV bags right now.

It's hard. But he is waking intermittently and squeezing my hand.

I'm very glad he's looking better and he can see that you're there and communicate via touch.

The hand squeezing part made me smile a little.

That sounds encouraging, though, that he's waking and communicating, even with the ventilator and all.

Praying that he'll be up and around and running Fiasco at the next MI convention -- and that this will all be a bad memory then.

Tiffin and I are thinking about you guys. Wish there was more we could do to help. Glad he's better.

I'm not a medico, but I'd guess the sedation is to give the stitches time to heal, which they will do better if he's not moving around a lot. BECAUSE he is sedated, he needs the ventilator and IV bags. Hope he progresses well!
