YIPEE HE'S BACK!
Delighted to report that Antares is now off all life support, he's conscious and the twinkle in his eye has returned. Hopefully he'll be out of ICU tomorrow. He's still quite weak and hasn't quite found his voice yet - not surprising after having had tubes in his throat for so long - so we'll have to wait a bit longer to hear all about his adventures. But he is smiling and stretching and being a model patient according to the nurses.
