Steve remains on the ventilator in ICU at Genesis. With the holiday weekend, we are having to wait longer for the culture results. We had two negative results for PCP pneumonia, so I think it will be ruled out. Then there is the fungal pneumonia, which we do not want him to have because of the danger to the kidney.
Our mode of communication is a challenge for both of us. I feel like jumping up and down when I finally guess right what his hand gestures mean while he falls instantly asleep.
