What a difference a say makes!
It's a new day. I got seven solid hours of sleep in a bed and a hot shower. Thanks Pat and Rob! Dan got excellent care through the night from a nurse named Tricia. His swelling is down today out of his right eye. Despite both a feeding tube and a trach tube, he is talking with a froggy little voice. Dan is determined to communicate ALL of his thoughts and intentions. He writes complete sentences on his little white board (better than some students) and is not well pleased when we finish his sentences for him. I think the ICU nurses will not miss us too much when he gets moved today. They promise it will happen today. The surgeons are still very pleased with Dan's progress. Thanks for your comments here, emails, texts and the like. We are wealthy in friends.
