Re: A big get well to Used2bfast
An update on Jeff from his son.
Written 3 hours ago
Well he has finally been upgraded to the Progressive Care Unit again...! He got moved to the PCU on Wednesday, which is an improvement from ICU. On Thursday they took him off the ventilator around 11a.m and stayed off until around 2a.m Friday morning he had to be put back on to give him a break. My sister and I drove up on Friday, we got there around 1 and he was off the ventilator again, the nurse said he had been off since 11a.m again, we asked if he would be put back on and they said yes at night to give him a break. So for now pretty much off ventilator during the day and on at night. We visited for a few minutes then we left to eat lunch, when we came back to the room, the speech pathologist had came and put in a voice plug into his trache so he could try and talk....! They told us to encourage him to try and talk but he was mouthing "it's too hard" so they came and took it out so he wouldn't fall asleep with it in. Mel showed up with Brad and Ty around 4:30, so we were all able to have a nice family visit with him for most of the day! His spirits are pretty good, still in a lot of pain and nurse said they may start some kind of physical therapy this week coming up. He will probably have to go to a rehab facility once he is able to do so. He will have to stay at the rehab facility and do physical and orthopedic therapy 3 times a week twice a day. So by far this was the best and most hopeful visit I have had since going to visit him! Hope to have more positive updates soon! Thanks for all you support!
