    It'd be nice for the OP to make an appearance in this thread again to give an update.

    I took a quick look, this was his last post on GC, but it looks like he goes a decent amount of time between posts, so he will probably pop in in a few days, hopefully with good news.

    He was placed on an ECMO machine roughly 10 days ago to give his lungs a break. He is making progress and is scheduled for a tracheotomy today. Showing signs of improvement each day but is still in an induced coma. Hopefully today goes well and he continues to make progress. I want to thank all of y'all for giving your time and showing concern to a complete stranger. On a side note Vol nation has gone above and beyond to help. I wasn't happy when my nephew committed there but man have they been awesome during this.

    Here's a snippet. Trach was postponed due to air in the lung. Went in to drain and realized it was blood. Drained the blood and found there was a ruptured vessel from blood thinners. They found he had blood in his lung the entire time and they scraped old covid scar tissue. He is now Covid free and recovering with family by his side. Y'all are amazing.
