Journal entry by Maggie Bowman

Gordon fam,

I am happy to report that Gordon came off the ventilator a couple of days ago and has remained off of it! The first night off of it, he even called Meg to talk. She saw a call coming in from a Northwestern hospital number and she assumed it was a doctor or nurse calling. But it was Gordon and he had somehow wrangled a phone to use in the ICU. There was discussion of needing a phone charger and wanting to make a film about it all. Ahhhh......

The doctor who called Meg today with the daily update was upbeat about additional progress he had made, and was excited to report that to her. Meg marvels at the commitment of the hospital staff and is thinking about how she can support the health care workers, particularly those who are the most economically vulnerable. If any of you know about good relief efforts in that direction, please do share.

The phone charger has since been delivered to the hospital, where we trust it is waiting in the wings for its big moment: charging Gordon Quinn's Blackberry. Stay tuned. And enjoy your evening filled with this good news.
