OMG! I am so overwhelmed by all your support and kind words. I am sitting here crying that some of you have even changed your avatar I am so touched and I know Legion will be so touched when I tell him tomorrow.

As of today, it is confirmed he does have ARDS. Prognosis is 50/50 at best right now. He remains on vent support. He is runing a high temp. He is a fighter though. He is on maximum sedation but awake today and in 4 point restraints so he does not pull out any tubes. He seemed happy when I told him about the well wishes from the board and I know he will be more touched tomorrow. He understood what I was saying to him and would nod his head yes or no. He is on heavy duty antibiotics. His chest x-ray was slightly improved today when compared to yesterday but it is wait and see, day to day.
They were able to stop the medication for blood pressure support today. Anything can happen. I'm hoping for the best. I just want him to get well.

Thank you again everyone for the thoughts and prayers! It means so much.
