Some happy news
Sheila called us this morning with very good news: our nephew Parker is out of the PICU. He's been there for almost 6 months exactly, ever since January 23 when he had the stroke. He is now on the 3rd floor (recovery), where he will spend another week or so, and if all goes well, he can go home fairly soon. Of course, this is just the beginning of his lifelong recovery--rejection of his new heart will always be a concern. His immune system is very weak, so we probably won't even be able to visit for 6 months to a year. We'll post when he goes home.
