Update ...

This is Daves' sister again. He wanted me to post a little update so everyone knew what was going on.

I spent the night at the hospital last night with him, and I am on my way back again. He has had 3 of his tubes removed, but we are still waiting for the last one to come out. We are hoping it will come out tomorrow, which would mean he could come home on Wednesday.

Now that he doesn't have the epidural, pain management has been a little more difficult, but they keep trying different things to get the right balance for him. His morphine drip is still his best friend. He is sick of living off of tortilla chips and teddy grahams and will be happy when he can eat sausage links and ham.

His spirits are good and he still has his sense of humor!

There have been some inquiries regarding donating blood. For those interested, you can call the Blood Bank at 1-877-659-2001. Let them you know you are donating for him and they will schedule a time for you to come in.

We appreciate all the love and support we have received. Everyone has been so kind, and we are very grateful!
