      update on Jerry (dad):  he is holding steady. They took him off the vent for 2 hours today and he did great. They will try him off vent for a few hours everyday. He is off BP meds and looking good on that front too. Still sediated for the most part. If he does not regress at all, he is scheduled for some plastic surgery on Wednesday….maybe he will come out looking like Brad Pitt!! LOL

      We did get into the Yaffe house (thank you everyone!!!!!). It is a big relief to have a place to rest.

      Mom is just now starting to worry about the amount of surgeries that may be in the future and the cost of them…but that is a bridge we will cross later.

      helicopter ride $10,000……..1st night in the hospital $15,000….having my daddy back PRICELESS!!!!!!!!


      thanks everyone for your encouragment and prayers!!!!
