    This update was on Bucknuts just prior to the one Janny left here (post #10 of this thread)

    Rusty is starting to respond.
    he is still on support and now down with ammonia but
    he knows we are there and communicates with us from
    time to time.
    They pulled the breathing tubes out yesterday but he
    was fighting for each breath he took.
    They put the tube back in around 5 pm last night.
    They are just taking hour by hour right now.

    God is finally answering our prays...
    I know he will make it through this.

    Thank you all for your prays and support.


    Janny's post #10 would follow this one chronologically. Great news Janny, thank you so much for the update. Much love to you and yours.

    A few more updates ... things are looking good.

    HI all,
    Just a small email to fill you in on Rusty.
    He is now out of I.C.U and into a step down room.
    All tubes have been removed and pace maker has also
    been removed.
    He is currently on antibiotics and most likely will be
    until they find out why his temp keeps going up.
    The DR. will readjust his meds today as his heart rate
    is a bit slow.
    He is walking,talking and eating but all in small
    To look at him today you would not know what this poor
    man has gone through in the last 2 weeks.
    He looks GOOD.......
    Im not sure how long he will be in there,my guess is
    another week or so.
    Rusty is working really hard trying to get his
    strength back so he can come home.
    He is doing a great job,im so proud of him.

    Thank you all from both Rusty and myself for all your
    prays cards,flowers and emails.

    Hi Justin,
