Good news awaits us….
Sean is a rock star!
Posted at approximately 8:45 AM PT
Sean had a great night last night! His ICP stayed in the teens and his temperature and all other vitals were great. Andrea ( one of his amazing nurses) was able to cut his pentobarbital (barbiturate) in half! I know that he has a long way to go and I was thinking that we should try not to get to excited because he could still go back and forth for awhile. Buuuut, you know what? We get so low on the bad days, why shouldn’t we rejoice and say thank you Lord on the the good days! Say it with me people “THANK YOU LORD”! Can I get a hallelujah! Okay so I’m a little excited.
Thanks for all of your prayers and support last night as we were making the difficult transition out of “the room”. I did get some sleep and I feel much better today.
BREAKING NEWS…… The Dr. was just in to talk to me and he said that things are going better. He said that Sean is coming out of the barb coma. He said his suppression rate is 4 and it was 8. I’m not sure exactly what that all means but I know that it is good. He also said that they are taking the bolt (ICP monitor) out of Sean’s head today and that they will monitor his ICP through the ventriculostomy (the catheter that drains cerebral spinal fluid). They will no longer be draining fluid from it continuously, however it is there if they need to use it.
I’m going to close for now so I can go in and hang out with my boy. By the way, I may call him my boy, but that is one strong amazing man in there!
Blessings today dear friends and yes I have an assignment for you today. Rejoice! Count your blessings. I mean it literally try to count your blessings and I guarantee you that no matter what is going on in your life you will not believe how many blessings you have (thats if you can count that high). So count them and thank God for them because God is the creator and the source of all blessings. I will start counting now, lets see where will I start. Sean’s prayer warriors, well thats already to many to count. Now you see how it works.
Thank you all for supporting us with your prayers and presence.
