The Young report: positive
Today’s news from Steve Young’s brother Hank:
Steve’s improvement is slow but steady. He has been breathing on his own for several days, and the lung infection is gone. Cognitive function is essentially restored. The focus of his current treatment is on physical therapy — he’s walking again — and grief counseling. It is expected that he will be transferred, perhaps even today, to an inpatient physical therapy unit at Hopkins or Good Samaritan.
Encouraging as all this is, Steve exhausts quickly and does not yet feel strong enough for visits. But Hank reports that “it means a lot to him, and to Nancy, Laura and Carrie, to know that there are a lot of folks out there thinking about the family and champing at the bit just to say ‘hey.’ "
