Dad did not come out of his induced coma the way we or the doctors would have liked. Dad’s brain is still “miss firing” and so they have him back in a sedated coma on some additional medication to stop the “miss firing”. The EEG and other tests will be performed again tomorrow morning to see if there is any improvement.
Like I said early this is a marathon, but true to form dad won’t let a challenge stop him.
We don’t anticipate any change or updates from the doctors until maybe tomorrow afternoon. We have all gone home to get some sleep and clean clothes.
Although I have done my fair share of belly aching at the WRHA and our medical system in Manitoba I have to admit I am SUPER impressed with the doctors, nurses, RT’s and the rest of the staff that have been assigned to dad. They have been top notch, professional, compassionate individuals who deserve great respect and prize for their efforts.
Mom once again is the rock of our family and is doing exceptionally well….we all have our moments.
Once again the doctors have asked that we limit visitation to immediate family members only. We will let you know when extended family and friends can come and we can all share a laugh with him.
Have a great weekend, hug your family and tell them you love them.
