Jackson had a good day with no major changes. The cranial pressure monitor continues to stay consistently low. Our nurse tonight told us that the next CT scan is scheduled for early Monday morning. If they like everything they see, they will most likely remove the big bolt in his head that measures pressure. After that, they will work toward reducing the sedation over the following few days. Lots of good movement when agitated today. I put lotion on him and massaged his feet and hands. The swelling on his face and around his eyes looked significantly better today. From everything we can gather from the nurses and doctors on his case, everyone feels positive and is optimistic.
Emalie and her friend Rae (who was at our house the day of the accident) came to visit Jackson for the first time today. They said he looked better than they thought he would. They asked lots of questions and seemed comforted to see that he is being taking care of, and that he is moving toward recovery.
We are thinking of all of you as you are thinking of us. We are so grateful to have such great friends and family. Know that we love you!
