    Default Get Well Frosty

    Forum Members -

    It was brought to my attention that Frosty was stricken seriously ill at the POCI Convention in Charleston last week and is expected to be hospitalized for an extended time in Charleston.

    Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

    I've chatted with frosty a few times, know his name is Dennis and lives in Michigan, checked the POCI roster and there's a bunch of Dennis's in Michigan, but sounds like we want the address of the Charleston hospital, not home address

    This is a good example of why the profiles should be filled out, then we would have known the 1st & last name & home town,state or province!!!!!

    Default Frosty's Condition

    The last that I heard was that they brought him out of the coma and took him off of the ventilator. He had to have a tracheotomy so that he could breathe. He has been sitting up some, but he is still a very sick man with a lot of infection inside. This information is third hand.

    Latest Update

    Today is Wednesday (Day 13). Dennis is doing great! He was wide awake this morning and they placed his special cap over his tracheotomy which would allow him to talk. At first when I arrived, he did not have it on and was unable to adequately communicate. After some investigation and discussion with his doctor, the reason it hadn't been put in place the previous evening as well as early this morning was because he was choking and gasping for air when they tried. Well, it was identified that some of the nurses did not understand that there was a certain little pouch at his throat that HAD to be deflated before installing. Once the doctor clarified that important point with them, they tried again with grave success. Therefore he was able to talk all day today and let's just say he has had plenty to say ever since. I warned the nurses that they might be sorry they installed it. The most frustrating challenge for him right now is continuing to remain in the bed as he has been there for so many days and his body is getting tired of laying around. Today Dennis received two units of blood to help increase his hemoglobin levels and there is continued monitoring of his kidney functions as well as surgery sight.

    Dennis was very happy to see his family today as well as some of his "Widetracker" friends. It is a joy to see him engaged in conversations involving cars and football. A sure sign that he is on the road to recovery.

    Doctors informed us this morning that hopefully within the next day or so, they can remove the tracheotomy tube. It is anticipated that he will only be in ICU for a couple more days at which time he will be transferred to a room on the surgical floor for continued recovery efforts. This evening, Dennis enjoyed his first bit of food. He was provided jello, chicken broth and tea. It was a bit of a challenge but overall a step in the right direction.

    He is in good spirits and looks forward for visitor hours.
