Rebecca Desmet posted to Andrew Desmet Support Group:
Today is 3 weeks since Andrew has been in the hospital! Amazing. Things are looking good at the moment. Andrew has been opening his eyes and is responding to what you say. He is still on the ventilator and cannot talk yet. The doctors have not said when they will operate again but it might be a while still. Thank you once again for all the support, concern and well wishes, it is all very much appreciated.

Good morning, dad is looking much better and is starting to breathe on his own. They may take the ventilator out very soon so he can start talking!
