From a family friend:
Jay's physical therapist visited him (Monday morning) and was pleased with his flexibility and range. That's great news.
Jay had his trachiostomy (Monday afternoon) and was sedated for about 2 hours. This is a procedure that is done in moving toward getting him off the ventilator and breathing on his own again.
His family was able to see him afterward and thought he looked so good! All of the tubes were removed from his mouth, and they could see his handsome face again. The doctors are confident that he will be breathing on his own in the next few days.
Jay's recovery is coming along consistent with what the doctors are expecting, so that's also good news. One day at a time...
Please continue to pray for a miracle
In addition, the friend sent along this information about financial help for Jay and his family:
