Captain Phil Harris of Deadliest Catch fame is recovering from his stroke even faster than expected!
After waking up from a medically induced coma earlier in the week, the Captain is now able to breathe without the aid of breathing tubes!
Way to go, bud!
The doctors are said to be "extremely impressed" with Harris' rapid progress - which has included breathing on his own, chatting up a storm and regaining feeling in the left side of his body.
It's only a matter of time until the Captain is back on the boat!
