More of the same for the King of Neuro-Trauma last night and Charlie did ok too. Two storms last night but not bad like some of his others. However, early this morning I had the odious task of booger removal because he was having some issues w/ breathing and O2 saturation and oddly enough I took a certain degree of pleasure in the extraction of said snot. Two cigarette butt sized boogs later and lil C was breathing freely and fell asleep. This morning we met w/ one of the ear, nose and throat Docs and he had some good info about his Cochlear implants. Apparently there isn’t as big a rush to get them in as they initially thought. He’ll have an MRI later this week to get a better picture and go from there. Charles had a little PT Session w/ Neil this morning and did really good. He sat and knelt, laid on his face and got to fall asleep w/ his momma holding him. All in all a good morning and we hope it will all lead to a good day.
Side note: One of Charlie’s Nurses is a guy named Dave and while I was watching Jeff Gordon turn his car into a crumpled soda can in the NASCAR race yesterday he came in and let us know what a HUGE race fan he is. He told me all about his love of horsepower, trackbars, wedge adjustments and restrictor plates. In general, how NASCAR is his life. I am so glad there is a fellow red-neck here at PCMC, thanks Dave!
