Daniel's totally on his own now with chest tubes removed and holding strong! His lung function is still supported by a ventilator, and they are pacing his heart until his body proves to be stable. We are told to expect a very bumpy 36 hours to come with blood pressure issues and other issues that they will continue to stay on top of.
Today brought many family visitors including my brother, Andrew, who flew in from NH today to be here for Daniel:) Our Aunt Diane and Uncle Rick showed up too (upon special request). Best friend Sherril Debonis has been here all day as Daniel's cheerleader and ours too, along with other very dear friends. We fielded many loving phone calls and emails of inspiration and prayers.
May God bless all of you for the love and support you've given to Daniel and to our family to date. I'll never be able to name all of the special people who have so lovingly prayed for Daniel. So many of you we don't even know. We are so blessed. Daniel has obviously touched many lives.
