Hi all. Thank you again for your support. I have to say again that when the time comes, this blog will be a great journal for Brian to see how far he's come & how much he & his family are loved. Your encouraging posts &, as always, generous gifts in so many ways are such a support for us--both immediately & for him in the future. When my parents hear from how far & wide reaching these expressions of love travel, they are constantly amazed.
Just spoke with my dad...they've yet to do the tracheotomy but are thinking there is a less invasive procedure they can do with the same results later today, just making for that much less of a delay in getting him on the road to recovery.
CT scan also scheduled this afternoon to double check the swelling in abdomen the first surgery addressed (namely making sure the pancreas is still intact), take a look at the pelvis, & just find out how much fluid persists in the lungs.
He's much less agitated today & my dad reports he's picked up on the Bible reading where Brian T. & I left off...can't help but think the two are related. ;)
Will let you all know the results of things once I know. My parents aren't getting as much one-on-one time with the doctors as they would like (Who would with their son in trauma icu, I guess?) but again I take that as a sign that the team is more comfortable with where Brian is at than they have been up to this point.
Thank you again for your prayers & encouragement--I'm getting a dose of what it feels like for a lot of you too--I had to come back to Raleigh on Sunday to take care of my family--it's so hard to be away from him! We'll be heading back down there tomorrow morning with his baby sisters, who have proven themselves anything but baby sisters as they have so strongly stepped up to handle a lot of responsibilities here while my parents are away.
Thank goodness he's in God's loving hands & I'd say Eliana's visits (& many others of you too) don't hurt either. ;)
