Late yesterday, Jimmy was moved out of CV Recovery, into an ICU for those who have specifically had a very serious surgery.

He is at St. Luke's - Cooley 8 B - Room 28. It is the 8th floor taking the green elevators. They have the same, serious, lock down hours too: 5:30am to 6:00am; 10:00am to 10:30am; 5:00pm to 5:30pm and 8:00pm to 8:30pm.

Off the ventilator, seems fewer & fewer tubes and IVs - although who can tell, there were SO MANY ! With the assistance of 3 physical therapists today, they got him out of bed and did the "bedside shuffle" - just to the end of one side and back and that took 40 minutes ! He was exhausted and napped the rest of the afternoon until I got there! Amazing - 5 days post-op ! Way to go Jim !!

He is talking slow and softly, but he is right here mentally! He is smiling again. He is not able to eat yet (feeding tube) but was able to have a few ice chips !

I think he is doing spectacular ! This is nothing less than a Miracle to see !

Great to hear that Jimmy is on the road to a great recovery ! I tried to visit the other day but got caught in the "lock down" at about 4pm. I left a note with the desk and hope it found its way to you.
