Mike had a good night last night. There were a couple of very minor episodes of coughing, which causes him great pain. All in all he is doing fantastic for a guy who last week was knocking on Heaven's door. He should take a walk today. Thank you for all the prayers and well wishes. It means a great deal to his recovery.
Mike is hurting and tired, but making great progress. No word on when he'll be out of ICU or when he can have visitors, but we know these things take time. We'll continue to send updates, as they become available.
We had a request from the contact form from Jonathan Menard a writer for the Herald-Guide for information on Mike. I wrote a lengthy letter back. Can any of you comment with any corrections or embellishments? I left in the original message below my response and crossed out Mike's cell number.
