Thank you all for the well wishes, thoughts, and prayers they are greatly appreciated!
Here's a bit of an update: Dave is still in the ICU, but will move to a post ICU recovery room either later tonight or tomorrow. He's able to feed himself soft foods like applesauce, thickened soup, pudding, yogurt, etc solid foods will come later when his swallowing abilities improve.
He's talking and engaged in the consultations with the numerous Doctors.
The next steps are to heal from the surgeries and also regain some strength. Once he's strong enough, and the incisions have healed enough, the radiation and chemo treatments will begin.
Again, thank you for the well wishes, thoughts, and prayers! Please keep them coming. He is starting on his long road to recovery.
