A Ray of Hope
My friend has finally showed a strong sign of improvement in this first-of-many battles back to health. As of tonight, he was moved out of the ICU (Intensive Care Unit) and back into an ordinary hospital room. He is still a long way from ready to go home, but he was awake, generally alert (who the heck knows what medicines and pain killers are streaming through his system?), and able to carry on a bit of conversation. He was tracking the conversation, and making all the usual leaps of cognition, so it seems he came through the worst part intact.
There is a long road ahead for him, but at least now there is a light.
