Today's press release from the hospital says he is stable. They did not use the word critical. But that doesn't mean he is completely recovered. What it means is that there are no complications and his vitals are working just fine. As I keep saying, we have complete faith and confidence in the medical team and in the prayers that are coming out way. We are very very glad and happy today that he is been listed as stable.
