Update #1, #2, and #3

1 After my class I head to the hospital to check on our friend. Surprisingly he's had the tube removed and is resting comfortably. His hands are warm and he opens his eyes slightly. I don't think he's out of the sedation yet, so I head out quickly to go find his sister.
2 M is in the cafeteria catching a bite to eat. I'm unaware that she hasn't heard the news that the tube is out and he's doing well, so when I say to her how exciting it is that T is awake she's stunned. Her lunch gets tossed and she's eager to head up to ICU to see him.
3 He's weak but still wanting to visit. We see bits of his old angry defiant self but his nurse is a lovely young woman and he's on his best behaviour when she's in his room.
