Hey gang-  some good and up-to-date news from John's wife Michele.


Please let everyone know for us that we got some super good news this morning.  John is off all the machines and breathing on his own, and his heart is beating on its own, too.  He is still retaining too much fluid for them to be able to close him up, but hopefully that will happen in the next few days.

Nice positive update from John's wife Michele last night:

Were very excited!  He is doing very well- he breathing unassisted some of the time, though still intubated.  His heart is doing well-in fact they never mention it as a concern anymore...it is all about the lungs.  So big happy news, but tomorrow will be the exciting day.  I can't thank you enough for all your support!

Great news from Michele this morning!

the surgery was successful- John's chest is closed and he is doing well.  We haven't seen him yet, but the doctor had nothing but positive things to say.  Thanks to all for your concern and good wishes!  I can't wait until he can see your messages and FB posts!  Michele

I communicated very briefly with John earlier this month about his upcoming surgery with no real details. I'm kind of getting chills reading these updates, as it appears to be a very significant procedure. Strange having emotional thoughts about someone I have never met in person. I hope he is in 100% health for OBH. He should be honorary host. Seriously.

I hope the lack of news is because everything is healing up in an uneventful way.  Take it easy and feel better YYac.

edit;

link removed (as per Yac's wishes)

seems john was just feeling a bit panicked and does not wish/need for anyone to contribute. just asks for continued good vibes.

he's continuing to recover and as with most recoveries, it has its ups and downs.

keep pushing forward Yac!
