Brother Update - Good news
Andrew has opened his eyes and recognized them. He even smiled. They have removed the respirator from his throat and he has an oxygen mask but he was able to ask "What Happened?" He does not seem to remember and we can only hope that in His mercy, God has erased the unpleasant memories from his mind.
The doctors caution that he has a long way to go, but are optimistic. He has a bad sinus infection which they cannot treat yet because of the blood thinners he is taking for his phlebitis. His arm is still swollen and he is still jaundiced but "Hope" is hanging over everything right now.
