Micah Andersen of Los Alamos, who was severely injured in Afghanistan back in June, is making progress in a San Antonio hospital, according to an email from his wife Linzi.
Linzi wrote, “Today was another big day for Micah! He passed his swallow test with flying colors and I guess the respiratory team hasn’t been happier to pull out a feeding tube! So he is one tube down and ready to take on eating real solid food. Bring on the Papa John’s Pizza he says.”
Linzi said the other big news is that he received his new electric wheel chair.
“It was so exciting to see him buzzing around the halls with Jay. He will be able to get around so much easier now in his new wheelchair. Today was the happiest I’ve seen Micah throughout his recovery process,” Linzi wrote.”
Andersen also got a three-star visit.
“Micah was moving well and he spoke clearly and well during the General’s visit,” Linzi wrote.
Andersen received a Purple Heart from Gen. Daniel B. Allyn Aug. 13 in San Antonio.
Andersen was assigned to Company C, 1st Battalion, 36th Infantry, 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 1st Armored Division, serving as an Armor Officer in Afghanistan.
