Jim Bingle – Saturday 11:00 a.m. Update

by Bingle on Sep.08, 2007, under Jim Bingle

We just got back a few minutes ago from seeing Dad. Since he still has the breathing tube in, he isn’t able to talk, but did seem to recognize all of us and answered questions by gently nodding or shaking his head.

They’ve reduced the assistance the balloon pump (which I’ve come to understand is actually a balloon in the artery) is giving him to every other beat, so that is progress. They’ve also reduced the pressure via the breathing tube, so that is also progress. The nurse indicated that they both might be removed later this afternoon. If so, Dad should then be able to be sat up in the bed.
