Update on Ben Wolverton

We are now on our 26th day since Ben fell off of his longboard.

Ben isn't doing well tonight. He is having difficulty breathing due to pneumonia. The doctors suspect that he may have aspirated a bit of food into his lungs while trying to swallow, so they've put him back under in order to give him time to heal.

A couple of days ago, our nurse warned us that if Ben did aspirate, it would put him in danger and "take him back to square one," with the breathing tubes, feeding tubes, and sedation. So I'm not sure if he's back at square one, but he's definitely going to need more times to heal.

They also believe that one of his meds has given him an allergic reaction, which includes bad hives and rashes.
