Shane is resting well and has had no incidents of agitation or restlessness. Due to the staffs confidence of no head or neck trauma there is no need for a neck brace, which has proven to be a source of irritation for him. Also, because of this there is no need to draw down on his medication and wake him up every 2 hours and have him respond to questions: this is a great thing. They have provided him with a specialized cooling blanket and his temperature has dropped almost to the normal state.
As he is quieted and resting he seems to be in an environment conducive for healing. The air-tube seems to be precautionary in that they have the oxygen setting at its lowest possible point. As he awakens it is normal for him to get anxious and with it in can easily increase its flow if there is a need.
He has been through an amazing ordeal. Some of the specifics of the accident and his current status do not correlate as to why he is still with us. The answer is quite simple: God has a plan for him which we know will unfold in time; this temporary circumstance will pass. We understand it will be a challenging and trying road but through Gods grace He will cause it to work out for good. God bless you!!!
