10/21 UPDATE on John Nelson... first off, wow! My brother is a true #TBIfighter! Even though he's not out of the woods, and is still considered critical, he amazes me every day! Today he was able to breathe on his own for 4 hours! To us four hours may not sound like a lot, but in my brother situation, 4 hours is like eternity! Especially when just a couple days ago he couldn't do it longer than 30 minutes. And his RT respiratory therapist) said his PEP (Positive Expiratory Pressure) got to come down from 8 to 6. So every piece of positive change we get, we will take! The best part of my visit was when I had to tell him goodnight. Because again, voluntary or involuntary, my brother was reaching for my arm and would not let me leave! Me and my sister truly did not want to leave his room tonight! But we made that promise, we will be back! Right along with our God! So, on behalf of our family to yours we send our love and truly can't thank you enough for all the prayers! Keep them coming!
