This is from Steven Kern.
Another update on John – his primary issue now is the pneumonitis caused by the inhalation of sea water. He is being weaned off of the extra breathing support, but this process will take several days at least. He is being placed intermittently on CPAP which supports his breathing but has never required formal endotracheal intubation or mechanical ventilation. Infection is always a concern, and he is being treated with antibiotics prophylactically.
I have returned to the US but will continue to update you as John progresses.
