Shane had a very restful day after his trachea procedure and they expect that to continue through the night. Quite frankly, he has a lot of medication in his system that is sufficient to knock out even the best of us. They have begun the reduction of certain meds which should be done in slow increments; they don’t want to have a sudden drop which could have undesirable results. He looks very good; the nurse said he is in need of a shave which will happen probably tonight. Knowing Shane he would be in full agreement with this decision; it’s been about 2.5 weeks since his last.
The nurse told me tonight that during one of his awakened moments he knew he was in a very bad car accident and he stated a couple of times that he almost died. All along we were not sure what he knew if anything: it appears that he does have some knowledge of what occurred and it may explain some of his agitated behavior. Hopefully, in the next couple of days we can start moving beyond this stage and start working towards him coming to.
We are truly believing that the next couple of days will be full of good report. Thanks again for all of your love, support and prayer!
