I don't know why I bother telling you what the doctors say. They change their minds and they disagree with each other. (Don't get me wrong--I still have great respect for our doctors!) What I'm trying to say is Neil doesn't have pneumonia. Apparently he had some kind of blockage in his lung that is now cleared up. He had a great day sitting up in the chair again for several hours. Eyes wide open, but not a lot of focusing. Lots of movement in his right limbs. He likes to pick things up with his right hand. It was fun to see him trying to take the pulse ox monitor off of his left finger. Of course we had to stop him, but if that isn't purposeful movement, I don't know what is!
Now Dr. Danish says we'll wait on the skull reattachment for a couple of months. Since it is major surgery, we don't want to set Neil back any. Time to get rehabbing! The move is supposed to take place tomorrow. The location is still up in the air. Be patient with us...it's a big decision!
And now we'll be taking something in the neighborhood of 1, 050 paper cranes with us. Yes, they have flown into the ICU and they're beautiful. And we understand more are coming. I think our rehab facility decision will depend on which one will let us hang them all in Neil's room!
