Memorial Day, but yet another regular day at ICU. We had two positive things on the agenda today. The drainage tub for spinal fluid was removed from Eric’s head. We’re now hoping his body will absorb the fluid like normal, he’s having a CT Scan done tomorrow to see how it looks. His 7” long stitches by the knee was also removed and it’s healing up nicely. I found out that Eric’s Neurosurgeon is from New York so no wonder he was so to the point the other day….!
We really had no communication from Eric today, besides that he reacts to pain. He had some movement and his eyes were open most of the day; same as yesterday. It’s like a roller coaster, one day up and the other day down….but at least it’s going forward.
Gina made a delicious strawberry / rhubarb pie for the ICU staff to show our appreciation.
