UPDATE FROM FAMILY: I have fabulous news to report. Michael has made another HUGE step in his road to recovery. Earlier today, Michael was moved to the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC).

The staff is excited to have Michael there, they heard about his story on the news and they are looking forward to playing an important role in his recovery. They specialize in working with patients with injuries similar to Michael's. He has a long road ahead, but RIC will really work with him and he will get the care that he needs. In speaking with the doctors today, they are very pleased with Michael's progress. They couldn't believe how far along he already is considering it hasn't been that long since his attack.

I am sure it will be much easier for most of you to visit now that he is back in the city. I encourage everyone to visit and spend time with him during his physical therapy. He will need a lot of positive reinforcement, because they are really going to work him physically. When I was with Michael today his spirits were up and he does VERY well when people are around. He is very determined so we will need to do everything we can to keep him motivated.

Physical therapy and his other programs will begin on Monday, please feel free to stop by and see him this weekend if at all possible. Every time I mention his friends and how supportive all of you have been, his face lights up!

MEDICAL UPDATE: Received this from a family member "I visited Mike tonight. The trach tube is still in place but not hooked up to the oxygen. He's breathing on his own! Not sure when the trach will be removed. He's not restrained either. Mike was somewhat agitated when I arrived but calmed down shortly thereafter. He was awake the entire time and responded. The nurse said they had him sitting up in a chair for a bit earlier in the day. Quite an improvement!!"

Update: Just spoke with Alicia Webb, Mike's niece. He's doing much much better today. And he DOES want visitors/company, which is great! We just need to keep calm when in the room and limit the number of visitors to two or three at a time. Let's also use positive language when speaking with him and try to avoid speaking about the incident. Much Love!

Sorry I miss quoted Romans 13:12 (copy paste issue) But I meant to paste on there: "So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light."

I just found out accidentally. I can't believe this. I hope you are doing much better now, Mike. Your former bartender Paula
