Relaxing morning :)
Rob went to the hotel to get some sleep after staying the night with Coop. The little man has had a relatively calm morning since I've been here possibly due to the extra Ativan. The nurse checks in periodically and the weekend attending Dr (Dr.Glasgow) also came in to assess him. She said that we have a lot of things to work on. First, we need to get these storms under control, so she is increasing the Baclofen to relax his muscles a little more. Then we will be able to focus on rehab including physical therapy, occupational therapy, hearing testing, and eye sight testing (probably on Monday). When the Dr. came in and checked him over he did open his left eye and gazed in her direction, however, it still doesn't look like he is focusing. At the care conference they estimated we would be here for 2-4 more weeks, but we all know that time frame is up to Charlie.
I hear Britt is having a great time in Disneyland. So far his favorite ride is Pirates of the Caribbean. I can’t wait for him to come home tonight so I can hear all about "the happiest place on earth". Now that we have moved out of the
PICU Britt will be able to see “Jack Jack”. The hospital has a program where they talk to siblings about the tubes and machines that little Charlie is on so Britton won’t be frightened. I think it has been tough on Britt to not be allowed to see his little buddy for two weeks. We will probably bring him in after pre-school on Monday.
PS-Meggie-Thanks for the baby legs. I know Charlie loves them!
