Update

Update from Shifra:

Her brother is B"H continuing to improve. He has been extubated, so he can finally speak. The doctors are continuing to disconnect him from tubes and machines one by one, so things are settling down. Thankfully, he is completely coherent and communicative in between doses of pain medication. Though he is still in the ICU, they are talking about sending him home, as early as early next week!

Shifra has been sleeping on a chair in the hospital, and in a classic Shifra line, says it's like "a cross between staying in a nice hotel and being homeless".

We miss you Shifra, and look forward to your brother's speedy recovery, and your speedy return home, and of course, to the blogosphere.

"a cross between staying in a nice hotel and being homeless".

A cross? On a frum blog like this? Chas ve-scholem.

I know that Yaakov Menken named his blog after The Cross, but I wouldn't expect that on a heimishe blog like this.

It's OK; I guess Shifra's just under too much stress to be both accurate and frum in her speech.

:-)

(We're thinking of you and you brother.)

I'm late, and I am sorry about that. Shifra, I hope this has a happy conclusion. You're in my thoughts and prayers.
