Chris Leeuw's Journal
Written Aug 11, 2010 2:20pmHey Everyone, Chris' dad and I were just able to spend about 15 minutes with him. He's continuing to recover from surgery. The respiratory team comes in every hour or two to help Chris get the flim and secretions out. It's an exhausting process for Chris, but he is truly giving it all he has. The drugs and fog of post-surgery have worn off and his mind and voice are strong again. He is staying strong and continues to fight the thoughts of hopelessness. Its a harsh realization that he'll have months of therapy with no assurances... but we are very hopeful and praying that a full recovery is in the future. Stay tuned for the latest !! - Justin Davis
