    Sadly, yes ... two days ago he was recognizing people by name, and they were going to send him back here "local" in some rehab facility.

    This morning, he is unresponsive again, and they had to reinsert the tubes.

    Visited Chief yesterday -- doesn't look good at all.
    His nurse tried to wake him for me - she tapped his chest rather soundly, and yelled "your chaplain is here to see you", but there was only deep snoring and a total lack of response.

    I contacted the Police Chaplain for that city, and he called me last night saying he stopped by the hospital to visit the chief, and... same thing - unresponsive.



    It's not looking good at all.

    A little less, but, yeah.

    OK, relapse - not looking so good... back intubated and on the critical watch list.

    The Chief had planned on retiring at the end of the year, but I seriously doubt he will be returning to work prior to that. Stable, but a long way to go.

    So, I think it was Sunday morning, they tried to remove the tubes and stuff, and the Chief actually flat-lined.
    They had do do CPR (no shock necessary) and they "brought him back", and decided to let him rest and try again.

    The next morning, they tried again, much less drama, and he is alert and communicating.

    Chief woke up - is responsive and coherent. Doctors don't know why. I do.

    Specialist last night said the images of the "mass" (not calling it a tumor) suggest high probability it's benign. This could be really good or really bad.
