Update: 9/6/14

Today is a VERY GOOD day for Chad. He had his breathing tube taken out, is conversing with people, vital signs are "stellar," will be eating soft foods, and moving to a chair for the first time. Thanking everyone for your support and prayers!!


No big news today.  Still resting.


Chad is running a fever but his temperature has come down to 100.6.  They have him sitting up and he is responding to commands but continues to be heavily medicated.  As he continues to improve through out today the plan tomorrow is to remove the bronchia tube allowing him to breath on his own and to reduce medication allowing him to be fully awake.

The care nurse indicated he is doing well and improving as planned.
