He is still on a ventilator but his numbers are going in the right direction.” They added, “Thank you to everyone for the prayers, positive thoughts, and the encouragement for Gary. Gary is the one who takes care of everyone. I know he is worried about everyone else and all the stuff he is not able to get done right now.”
