Today's update from Shifra:
Though her brother continues to improve, he seems to be in a lot more pain, especially in between doses of pain medicine. The doctors took both chest tubes out today. He was able to sit in chair for few hours today, and even watched a DVD with Shifra.
Shifra says it's been really hard to see hard to see him in so much pain but the doctors say he's definitely headed in the right direction, and might get out of the ICU as early as tomorrow.
She even got out of the hospital a little today, taking her nephew (her brother's son) for a sorely needed visit to the park, and running a few errands for her family.
Here's wishing him a continued speedy recovery.
