The MRI results came back and I’m afraid I have some bad news. Before I tell you, you have to believe me that I’m truly hopeful and I know Eric will recover, it’s just going to take longer time. Eric has a swelling on both sides of the inner center part of the brain. This is the part we use to receive and delegate information. He’s most likely not going to wake up until the swelling is gone, which could take a long time. It’s been four weeks since the day it happened and still now true reaction from Eric. Yes, I almost puked when I heard this. It amaze me that with today’s technology we still don’t know how the human brain works, there’s nothing we CAN do at this point but to wait. Wait and pray for a miracle. I’m not a prayer kind of person but hey, I might try it. I’ve been told that the longer we’re having to wait for the swelling to go down, the harder it will be for Eric to recover. The doctors are still hopeful and so am I and the rest of the family.
Our nurse for today told us stories about patients who’s condition had been way more sever then Eric’s and they recovered from it. It’s just going to take time. Eric will too, recover from this. I know so because I know Eric’s personality; he’s the most stubborn person I know. Eric is also good at reaching set goals; his goal is to recover.
