Don got another cat scan this morning and things just keep looking better and better. If I understand correctly he is not “in a state of bleeding” but they are just draining the fluid that is there (on his brain). The pressure levels are still really good (20 being bad and his range from 4-12 throughout the day).
They want him to being taking some more breaths on his own by tomorrow evening when they remove the breathing tube to try to communicate with him.
The Dr. said no surgery will be required!!!! And they feel good enough that now they will start to focus on the rest of his body – looking for infections and such (for example his sinuses are packed and they don’t want that to become infected.
Mom said he looks a smidge more like himself but his eyes are still swollen shut.
When they reduce the sedative he does move his limbs and the movements are fluid, the Dr. is pleased with that too.
We are all doing very well and I really feel have moved confidently with the grace and power of God through the last 30 some hours.
Your continued prayers are appreciated as this is far from over.
Feel free to cut and paste as you like. Mom has no problem with that. She loves her blogger friends and is happy to know people are learning of the news and praying.

    Oh Ang….I wish my arms could be around you every minute….I dashed home tonight because the Dr. ordered me to….refresh and restart for the long haul….I’m in!

    I’m actually having a glass of Malbec and soaking up the praises and petitions of the body of Christ.

    I cannot even believe at times that I am typing these words…

    Seeing the babies made my day…

    I can view blogland in the library of the hospital but not the comments for some reason…thank you all for your help in this incredible journey…

    and Ang hope to see you maybe by the weekend.
    It felt so good to laugh with you, too.
    with love, Mom
