Hi! My dad was hospitalized with pneumonia two weeks ago. He was intubated but now is breathing on his own. He's getting healthier. He's still sedated but they bring him out once a day to see my mom and sister. He's unable to follow commands, squeeze my hand etc. but he's also incredibly hard of hearing and his hearing aids aren't in. His eyes open but he doesn't seem aware. His brain scans are normal. Has anyone had experience with this? We're eager to get him completely off sedation, they're about to do a tracheotomy to help him breathe. I guess I'm hoping to hear, yeah that happened to my dad, but with time, he got better.
