Some fantastic news tonight, Thursday. Barry is scheduled to come home tomorrow a.m. He had a visit at Mass General today and everything looked very good. Spaulding arranged some services for him at home, and he's been cleared to finish his recuperation here. We are thrilled that his ordeal is drawing to a close. All he needs to do now is rest and put some weight on.

Thank you all for your concern and support throughout - it really helped. It's over!

Been thinking about you Barry.... Now you need to picture Dani and I in her rented Magnumn with the Hemmie engine. (Never saw such a guy magnet as that car..) Belting out songs with the Johnson Girls on the CD system and sending out all kinds of good energy. We weren't all that far away on 495 so it didn't have far to travel.

Had an e-mail from Justine today allowing how Barry's on the mend.

"Barry is not quite yet phone-worthy, but he is making such steady progress
that he's sure he will be soon. His voice took a beating from the tube, but
they assure him it is all reversible. H So, Barry is pushing them to let him come home this week, and finish his recuperationn here with maybe a hospital bed and some visiting nurses... Things are going swimmingly!"

Keep sending the positive energy - Tom

Barry has continued to improve each day. He was transferred today to Spaulding Rehabilitation long term acute care facility. We have no reason to think that he will not enjoy a complete recovery. His room overlooks the Charles River, with a view of the boats going back and forth. He was a little too tired to appreciate it after the transfer, but I know he'll be enthused about it tomorrow. There is also a beautiful waterfront park that belongs to the hospital. Barry now has the complete Mudcat thread printed out, and is reading a little of it each day. He loves it, and feels very lucky to have all of you. He'll be working hard in physical therapy, occupational therapy, and possibly speech (he's a little hoarse after being intubated so long). If I know Barry, he'll be home well before the rehab predicts. So, good news all around on this front. Thanks for everything, Justine

Refreshing and hoping all is going well and that we'll get an update soon.

Reading the last few posts, I have a vision of Barry marching (slowly) down the hospital corridor with the requisite tubes trailing behind, singing a shanty version of "Deck the Halls" at the top of his lungs! It's an interesting image!

We're thinking of you both often, and sending energy your way.

Rita, you are so right about the physiological benefits of singing. I had a bad respiratory infection several years ago and I couldn't sing. (I've never been able to sing well, but that's another story.) I called my method Low Impact Aerobic Singing. I started singing something gentle, and when I could do that, I progressed to High Impact Aerobic Singing. I worked for a long time on Mary Ellen Carter, a real belt-it-out song. I learned to pace myself so that I could sing the entire song. That was hard. When I could do it, I kept doing it for a while. Then I worked on singing the same song one octave higher, which took more breath, and paced myself until I could do it. It certainly felt good to be able to do it.

I really don't mean to divert the discussion from Barry and his recovery. I just want to say that singing in the ICU is wonderful. I hope it means that his body and his spirirt are both strong.

Well it would be grand if Barry could get home soon. If he was still in the ICU last Saturday though, it could still be a while. It varies from person to person, but they may decide to be a little extra conservative. After all, Barry's just had two bouts of major surgery, and had the extra burden of liver failure until the second liver was found.

Well I sure hope it's soon. Barry I hope you break all records for a rapid recovery now.
