We heard from Julie yesterday and Steve is doing better:
"Praise God for answered prayers.
Steve is awake and alert today.
They had him up in a chair and starting on breathing exercises.
"I love you babe" never sounded so sweet.
One concern: He has signs of infection somewhere, so they are busy chasing
that down and starting treatment.
I think he will stay in ICU at least another day. It depends on what happens
with the infection. Let's pray they get it under control quickly.
Thank you all so much.
