"...………………. NEW UPDATE: Apparently last night was not good. The doctor called Mom at 3:30am to let her know they were moving him back to ICU. This was a big surprise as it seemed he was making so much progress. The stroke recovery team was actually very impressed and we were feeling good. Last night he was having difficulty breathing. He attempted to get out of bed and ripped out his catheter before falling. When they got him to ICU they determined that the infection he had prior had moved to his blood. His heart can not fight anymore. We believe his multiple attempts to get up and take off his monitor cables and tubing is him saying "I'm done". He had made it crystal clear that he wanted no part of living on machines, like a vegetable, or with being a bourdon to anyone in order to live (especially my mother). The doctors sat us down in the family room and told us where he was at. He has no more fight. He is on medication that is keeping his blood pressure up and therefore, keeping him alive. They say when he is taken off of it, he has an hour to a day before he passes. We are waiting for Brooke to arrive before the medication is pulled. It is a very sad day for sure but this is what he would have wanted. I love you Dad.""
