Mr. Bichler is now in stable condition and will be moved out of the Surgical Intensive Care Unit in the next day or so. They took him off the ventilator yesterday and he is breathing all on his own and is able to talk. He was evaluated by a speech therapist today to gauge when he will be able to start eating on his own. Tomorrow he will start working with a physical and occupational therapist to start getting him back in shape. I know he wants to get back to school and coaching his team as soon as possible. He is making great improvements but full recovery is expected to take a long time.
