Update from this morning (12/4) from Family Member:
Brandt is off the vent and breathing on his own. When asked questions, he is nodding and giving thumbs up/down. He mouthed bye to his cousin when she left the room, he told his mom he loved her. The doctors may try to begin feeding him, and are even considering sending him to therapy to stand up on side of the bed.
OB, this is most excellent news. While no one knows what the future may hold, he is fighting. The family also expressed gratitude for all of the prayers they are receiving. Please continue to keep this kid in your thoughts and prayers.
Edit to add: Remember the family is conducting a blood drive in Iberville Parish today, and is also asking anyone who may be interested to donate blood in his name at the Lady of the Lake Hospital Blood Bank in Baton Rouge.
