10/14/12 from Mom

Shane had a restful night and then became quite agitated this morning. He had to go up on some of the medication that we were trying to decrease. Currently he is resting comfortably. We just signed the consent for the tracheotomy which is scheduled for tomorrow morning. Hopefully this will produce a positive effect and help with the breathing as well as the agitation. The wound vac is still pumping out secretion from his incision on his back. They will look at this again tomorrow. The Psychologist that is working with the trauma team is off on the weekend and should resume conversations with the other team members and discuss changes in his medication. Hoping Monday is a great start to the week, with the tracheotomy first thing tomorrow.

    Greg and I will keep Shane in our continual prayers. I don’t claim to have any medical knowledge, but from what I have read Shane is a spirited young man, so I would think he would be agitated each time his sedation wears off. Right now it may his way of trying to control something. But eventually, and I pray sooner rather than later, he will find a way to recognize what has happened, allow his mind to accept the current situation, and ease off the sedation. That strong spirit is like a two edged sword. Right now he is fighting something he cannot figure out , but I do believe that when his rehab starts it will be this same strong spirit that moves him forward.
    As parents we can only imagine the roller coaster you are all on. But I see your faith is great, and hope will move you day to day. Although these days are extremely difficult, the future will be better. May God watch over all of you.
    Love Barbara And Greg
