B"H, Thank G-d, Improvement in Condition of Moshe Refael ben Aliza Chaya

I received an update from Sarah's (Moshe's wife) mother and received permission to post it. Of course, please continue to pray for a complete recovery, Refuah Shleimah, for Moshe Refael ben Aliza Chaya.

Dear Relatives and Friends,

I'm happy to tell you that there has been an improvement in Moshe's condition. They have removed all the horrendous tubes from his mouth and he is now able to talk a little and drink through a straw. His face is all colours of the rainbow with big purple rings around swollen red eyes but it seems that he can see -- albeit with blurred vision -- from both eyes.

Adding to the facial swelling is the fact that he is being given steroids - presumably to reduce the build up of fluid in the sinuses.

They are hoping to operate early next week and are talking about possibly moving him out of the ICU tomorrow.

That's it for now. Thank you all for being with us in your thoughts and prayers,

Thank you
