Blake's blood pressure dropped & fluid built up in the right (uninjured) lung. Its called "sympathetic effusion", caused by trauma to liver immediately below. Chest tube will be inserted to drain the lung.
Steve & Katie agreed to put Blake in a study for feeding trauma patients. He will be fed via tube around the clock rather than "meals"

Facial hair update - Sideburns are intact :)

  1. I am also glad the sideburns are intact.:)
    I just got caught up on the blog and I think it is wonderful you are doing this.

    I am also encouraged by his continued progress. I know he will continue to fight. Please give my best to Blake and the entire family... you are all in my thoughts.
