Sal's Dad: Sunday afternoon update

Hello everyone.....

Sal's Dad is stable today, and is awake and alert, after having some difficulty breathing this week. But he is breathing on his own now.....they removed the oxygen mask today! And a kidney specialist said that an ultrasound showed that his kidneys are functioning fine.

Unfortunately, a feeding tube will need to be inserted through his abdomen since it will be a little while yet before they can evaluate his swallowing ability. Hopefully, with some rehabilitation, the tube can be removed and Pasquale can resume normal eating.

We're wishing him all the best as he continues his recovery!
