We started off the day rejoicing with Shane’s progress with the removal of the air-tube, neck brace, and his weening off of the sedation. We knew the challenge would then be his awakening and him understanding his condition and moving on from there. The great news is that he has proven he can breathe on his own without the aid of a machine.
As the day went on it was obvious he was not handling it well and the decision was made to administer the medication necessary to get him to a quiet state; this required the reinsertion of the air-tube. As his healing progresses they will again start its removal. This is common with those dealing with such trauma and is not viewed as a setback but an indicator of where he is in his healing.
We expect him to have a night full of rest: God bless you!
