Journal entry by Dave DelMarcelle

Super Dave had a big day yesterday with surgeries and lots of improvements! Doctors removed a feeding tube that ran down his throat and inserted what is called a trach and PEG. This procedure make it so Dave will have less tubes down his throat (which is more comfortable for the patient). He is more alert everyday and no fevers.

He continues to exercise his diaphragm daily and is breathing longer on his own with help from ventilator. Right now he is unable to talk until throat heals but will eventually get that back with time.

Dave also had surgery to fix his broken leg and everything went well!His family is grateful for all the prayers and support for Dave!! Keep 'em coming! SUPER DAVE!
