I just got off the phone with John's nurse. He's definitely waking up now, moving both arms and following voice commands so that's a huge improvement. They're adjusting his pain meds to keep him comfortable. So while he's awake and responsive he still can't talk because he still has the breathing tube in. The surgeon was in this morning and looked at his leg and I'm waiting for his call now to see what he says. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will be good news.
