Jim - Day 2

2:00 PM  Around 12:30 the doctor removed the breathing tube. What a relief! Jim sounds like Froggy Who Came A-courting. Says maybe he will start to sinG Bass. Just good go have him kidding again

Have you  ever noticed the sounds in a hospital ward on and ICU unit? The place throbs with the sounds from machines, and signals, and beeps, running feet, rolling carts. All this busyness.
Life sustaining busyness.

11:40 am  Jim is till in ICU - all is on track - so they say. They hope to remove the breathing tube this afternoon. They are waking him up not - he is responsive, recognizes us and communicates. I can see by his eyes and motions that he is thinking through his situation and checking things out
Quite like him - being the clinician. Yes, out-puts are good etc, etc.

Karen and Robin and I stayed at a hotel across the street last night and when I finally felt secure enough to leave I collapsed on the bed - went right to sleep until 5 am this morning.

Can't tell you all how much your emails and messages mean - they are a hug, a warm touch, a connection to the normal we are eager to get back to.

Good. It all sounds good, Ellouise. Thank you so much for keeping us updated. Please do rest tonight--you need to stay well too.

Love and hugs to you and Jim.

Dear Ellouise,

VERY VERY glad to hear Jim's recovery is on track. I was away from my computer all day, but kept on thinking about you two.

Cyber hugs,
Kate
