A Tentative Timetable...or not

Dr. Fasanya told us this morning that even though his ICPs aren't exactly where we'd like right now, he feels Neil is out of the acute phase. They will probably be taking him off of the sedatives and paralytic sometime early next week and begin the waking-up process.

Oops. Dr. Bagner just came in and said that would just be to do a neuro exam, and then it would be back on the sedatives. It still all depends on the ICPs.

Of course we want to hear the positives, but we need to hear the practical. We're going to be on this ride for a long time.

Thanks for keeping us company.

Thank you so much for letting us know how Neil is doing through this. I appreciate it a lot, and I know everyone else does too. Kait and I are working on a poster to hang in his room :] Hopefully we will be able to bring it by within the next few days.

Scott and Lori,

Thank you so much for keeping many of us updated. You guys are in our thoughts and prayers out in the Northwest. It seems like you have most of the country covered with prayers for Neil. We love you.

Meredith is my sister-in-law. (Our hubbies are brothers) You dear son is in my thoughts and prayers. I know that Heavenly Father answers prayers. I am amazed at the support your family has--it speaks volumes about Neils character and the good boy he is.

We are praying for a speedy and complete recovery.
