Last night and into today was the first full day Paul/Tucker is off of oxygen and on room air! Every breath is still fought for and the best news about this means it’s a first step of coming home! Speaking of steps, therapy has proven itself and he’s walking again, though in his own words “it’s more of a wobble than a walk- kind of like how I dance”. Importantly he gained 10lbs of nearly 40 lost and this is also a milestone of return. His doctors are thinking of sending him home late this week and though it’s a moving target, it’s something to motivate him. We love you all and are continued to be stunned by the support from everyone! We will get through this and it is not without your support. Cheers! Hi everyone! Potential discharge tomorrow! Tentative SURPRISE if you want to gather outside of Saratoga Hospital socially distanced. Day 24: Well everyone I wanted to try to give my own update today, 7 days after the ventilator was removed. I’ve had some bad days and some good but every inch I’ve fought for is hallowed and I won’t give it up. Sara read to me so many messages of support and love when I was unable to read but I could always understand. I am stunned by the support of everyone; friends colleagues and even strangers have been touched not by my story but for the message of hope and the humanity shown by all. I owe it to you all for what has been done and it’s my promise to you that I will continue to fight the fight. I will walk out of this hospital. I will continue to serve the community that has supported me so selflessly. I thank you and love you all for the endless support and together, we will triumph over COVID and once again walk shoulder to shoulder! 4/17 Day 22 Rather than ending on a negative note I will share a note with you all. Some people who are on a ventilator for 11 days are just starting to talk after a few days. As you all know how Paul/"Tucker" talks he started speaking right away and was even upset that speech therapy was sent to help him. He said, "Speech therapy? Talking is the only thing I am good at." Cheers and have a great weekend! #Tuckertribe #Tuckertalk From Sara 4/15: Paul/Tucker is off of the ventilator and graduated from the ICU, no longer in critical condition! He is recovering and thanks you all for the outpouring of support, love and prayers. He has a road of recovery ahead of him and we will continue to keep everyone updated on the status reports. As always, many thanks, sending love around the world! Cheers #Tuckertribe! Update: Day 17-Nothing new to report. Our boy is still fighting. Happy Easter everyone. -Tony///Hospital day 16/Ventilator day 9. Critically stable and Paul has an infection. Sending love from our family to yours.
