Grandma Kathi stayed the night with Charlie and she said it was pretty mild. There were a couple of storms, one ending in a diaper blow out that necessitated an entire linen change. I’m sure it made him feel much better afterwards. The nurse was really proactive in giving Ativan and Morphine at the same time which seemed to calm him down. His left cast is being left off to decrease the agitation. I am told that these storms almost always go away over time. I think it must have something to do with the brain re-regulating itself. It is expected that before we go home they will subside completely. The vision test and swallow study will not be done until we get closer to going home because he needs to be more alert in order to get good results.
