I just talked to Dallas' mom and dad. He is doing better today. They gave him a blood transfusion to help his blood gases. They were better immediately. He is still on oxygen a little and they are hoping to remove that tomorrow morning so his throat doesn't get infected. He's breathing much better, still fighting pneumonia. They are 99% sure his brain will be undamaged. He is still sedated but very much wants to get up. Maybe after the tubes are out tomorrow he can. Thank you for your prayers. His mom said she had just learned how to swim last year. So she had several scary events going on for her at the same time. Jump in deep water, rescue your child, pull him out and yourself, administer CPR to your own child. She said she thought he was gone when she got to him, so he is doing so much better now.
