Update from OSF, I am breathing better and off of oxygen most of the day. I've made a few walks in the hall. There is something weird going on with my hemoglobin since I've been in the hospital that they haven't figured out yet. So one step to accomplish tonight is to make it through the night without oxygen. The second thing is to figure out why the hemoglobin is down. I'm not sure yet how long Ill be here but feeling a lot better. My talking is finally starting to come back. Last night was better and today has been better yet so I am really thankful for that. I still cant talk on the phone but can have a conversation at least.
Thanks for your prayers,
Derek & Leann
