Musings and Meanderings
Thursday, May 25, 2006
My brother is being brought out of the coma gradually. They began yesterday evening. His lung infection is gone as is his fever; he has some remaining edema in one lung and also some small pulmonary embolisms in both lungs which are not good but not considered dangerous -- and, as of yesterday evening, he has presented with a major phlebitis in his left arm. It is terribly swollen. They are treating the embolism with blood thinners which should also work for the phlebitis.
