Ken managed to stay out of the ICU because the results of the bronchoscopy showed improvement, he go to stay put. He tested positive for a viral infection and a fungal infection (both in the lungs) but it's likely the fungal infection is a false positive due to all the antibiotics he's taking.

As usual, he's continuing on hydration, nutrition and oxygen. He's starting to take more walks around the floor and is eating little bits each day. The viral infection is a cold so they are monitoring him as it takes its course and hopefully he'll get better as the cold goes away.
