UPDATE: Saturday @ 10:30 a.m.

From Kathy:

Off sedation meds for the last hour. Tube is still in but he’s breathing on his own for about 30 min. Still breathing a little to fast. Dr wants to give him more time before they take it out but still hopeful it will happen today.

Infection dr was also just here. Confirming legionella and probably got it from the plumbing in their house. Once tube is out it will still take some time. He’ll be tried and short of breath for several days. Dr said he will have full recovery…no long term effects.

    Yay! Hooray! We miss him here at work (Point Vicente Animal Hospital). Everyone has been awesome pitching in while Derrick has been ill, but we can’t wait until he’s back, either! Skeeter, Asia, Chopper and BraBra, Elvira and little kittens say “Hi” and get well soon. Elvira found anew home, so she says “Bye!,”as well.

    Great news glad to hear Derrick is on the mend. Everyone at work has been thinking and asking about Derrick. We all miss him and look forward to his return. Not one day or even hour went by without someone asking about how Derrick was doing.
