Shawn has had to fight hard the last couple weeks.
He was transferred back to the hospital for more testing and another surgery. His wounds needed some extra attention and he now has a wound vac on his lower sternum and his tail bone bed sore is being packed. He had wires removed from his chest and his upper sternum is healed.
He was put back on the ventilator and feeding tube as he was struggling and malnourished.
As of today he is off the ventilator and had his first real food in days, but still has the feeding tube.
He has been really tired and resting a lot since being at the hospital but was able to use a walker to walk as well as go outside in the wheelchair today. He really enjoys getting some fresh air and is hoping to get outside more and more.
His doctors think he can be transferred out to long term care in a few days if everything goes well. Shawn is looking forward to that so he can get some time with his dog and work toward getting home.
Shawn asked me to let you all know how very appreciative he is for all of your donations, messages, thoughts and prayers. He sees it and it is helping him push through. Our whole family is grateful for you all. Please keep it coming so we can keep Shawn motivated to get home.
