Monday 10:30 pm

He's in a coma right now and will most likely not wake up this time. His breathing is better and more comfortable, but there is still a gap in between breaths. His chest isn't retracting anymore, and he seems calm and easy when he's breathing. No one knows how long it will be- a coma can last anywhere from hours to weeks. Tonight when we went to say goodnight, he half-opened his eyes and tried to say something to me when i moved his pillow. Keep coming to visit because he can still hear you and knows that you're there even if he can't respond.


  1. Alex,

    Thanks for this update. Please know we are there with him and with you, Bev, Drew and Ginny, Rob and Barb all night long in our thoughts and prayers.

    Cover up with the blanket and rest if you can.

    Penny and Tom

  2. Alex & Drew,

    Thanks for the continuous updates. I hope they have helped you get through this difficult time as much as they have helped us. We are thinking about you and the rest of your family. Please let us know if there is anything we can do.

    Love you both,

    Pam & Drew
