Zack is responding to voice. I've been reading to him --- "The Samurai's Tale," by Erik Christian Haugaard --- and so has my mom --- "Warriors: Into the Wild," by Erin Hunter...The oxygen levels in his blood increase when he's listening to us read and his heart rate and blood pressure slow down a bit too.
Thanks so much for your comments, emails and text messages. I've been reading them to Zack. You can also leave me a voicemail message and I'll play it for him.
Wendy Votroubek, Dave Johnson and Brian Armstrong visited Zack yesterday. Brian even called upon his paramedic training to help Gina (shown, a respiratory therapist) and a nurse reposition Zack.
