Couple of AWESOME updates:
1. Derrick is doing great. Looks like he’ll be taken off the ventilator tomorrow. He has been awake today, though, which is great and is IMMENSELY encouraging to Kathy.
2. The doctor just came in and they finally found out what has been ailing Derrick. It is called legionella pneumonia. Still not sure where he could have gotten it – it is usually caught from standing in contaminated water. But, all treatment he has had up to now is the right treatment.
