Glimmer of hope

We’ve been in a stale mate for a couple of days regarding my brother’s health. There was a huge infection in his abdomen that was drained along with some breathing difficulties back on Thursday. This morning, my sister-in-law called the hospital for an update and it was actually a little positive. Tom was responding to some of the questions with ‘thumbs-up’ and head shake ‘no’. His eyes are still not focusing, but he’s actually hearing and processing something. I’ll be down there this afternoon to see him before we have another meeting with the current physician. A group of Tom’s old Theta Chi buddies came for a visit on Friday. I think they helped bring him back into the responsive world.

We will see what the rest of today brings.
