Tim Franklin, the editor of The Sun, has circulated a memo with word about Steve Young’s condition received today from Steve’s brother Hank and the family pastor, the Rev. Thomas Blair:
Steve has been transferred from Sinai Hospital to Johns Hopkins for further treatment of acute respiratory distress syndrome. His condition is somewhat improved, though he is still heavily sedated and on a ventilator.
But his X-rays look improved, and apprehension about any opportunistic infection is reduced. The doctors estimate that he might be well enough to be taken off the ventilator in another two or three days, and they are describing his condition as “recoverable.”
Calls and visits are discouraged, but I am forwarding cards and notes sent to me at The Sun. I don’t expect to post about his condition over the next several days unless there is some significant change. Thanks to all of you who have expressed your concern for Steve and his family.
