I went in to say goodnight to him today and while I was there, with Brianna, he took a LONG big breath! That was a bit scary for me because it made the ventilator stop, so I sat and stared at it a bit until it kicked back on. His nurse Chris says he's doing most of the breathing, so praise God for that! He just needs time to heal. The brain needs time to repair itself.
Every day is a milestone for Troy. Every day he'll just have to keep on keepin' on.
I have a meeting with the hospital social worker and the nurse case manager on Monday to start making decisions for his long term care. One of the options is that they move him to Shepards Center http://www.
