Eric has improved greatly. Today all his monitoring tubes were disconnected. He sat up in a chair early this morning for 1 ½ hours. This afternoon, he was moved from the High Dependency Unit to the general ward, where he shares a side ward with one other patient. Several times, he has walked short distances along the corridor. It seems that the infection which had given him a slight fever yesterday, is now under control.
We await further news as to whether the doctors wish to investigate any further the possible source of the internal bleeding which caused Eric’s massive drop in blood pressure on Saturday, as well as the results of the biopsies. We hope Eric can come home in two or three days.
