    We got a call from the med staff this morning- they will be taking the chest tube out today hopefully, because that seems to be the main source of his discomfort. They also apparently want to try to see if they can get him walk a little bit. So it'll be a hard day for him. But he's still fighting, so that's a good sign for now.

    And again, thank you all.

    That's a really good recovery. Hope he keeps up his fight!

    Praying for you so hard! Your Dad sounds like the angels are taking care of him! I really believe he is going to pull through. He will be a walking miracle! Take care of yourself and your other family members, too. Your Dad needs you to be healthy! Big hugs!

    Thank you all! Today is the first that I've really felt optimistic at all. Cautiously so, but still optimistic. It was a positive day; my mom and I got there after dropping my brother off at work, and he was sitting up in a chair next to his bed. The medical staff took out the chest tube before we got there, and my dad said it was quite an experience, he was hurting a lot. But he seemed much more aware, and though he was completely worn out he seemed pleased to see us and to hear our chatter. We stepped out of the ICU a few times to give him a break to rest, and he was always ready to see us again when we came back. He also got to walk a little bit today, and his heart rate is still coming down. It is higher than it should be, but the range is lower every time I see him.

    The valve test results are still not in yet, but once they are the doctors will know exactly what to do, it sounds like. And the current antibiotics are working well. So just pray that the trend continues.
