Today is 9 weeks since your accident. It doesn't get any easier...it's still hard to believe this has happened to you. My questions still remain unanswered, do you know what happened to you? Are you scared?
Mom checked on you this morning and said you were sweating. She said your gown was completely wet and you had sweat pooled in your ears. I really don't like the place your in...no one does. You need acute long term care and your not in the place for that. You will be if Mom has anything to say about it. Mom and Diana went to Texas Specialty Hospital and they both seemed to like it a lot. They offer so many of the things you need to progress. For one, the ratio is two patients for every nurse. Now it's a waiting game on the insurance to approve it. We are your advocates Johnny! We will fight for you! You are so loved little brother!!
**Mickey, Robert & Uncle Charles came to visit today at lunch.
Mickey said you opened your right eye up wide and stuck your arm out like you were punching. He said you were very tense.
**Mom said that she brushed your teeth before she left for home and she told you to open your mouth and you did. I know it seems like such a small thing but we are going to celebrate them all! We are all so proud of you!
I came by this morning and you were sweating a lot. I changed your gown and pillow cases. Tonight you are just as bad. You seem frustrated that you can't communicate. I tried the blink once for yes and twice for no game but you weren't consistent. I had to put your mitten back on - you were being a big brat. Before I put it on, you reached up and touched your mouth and chin. I love you. Goodnight! I wonder if your cold, you were always cold, even in the summer.
The Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves who are crushed in spirit...
**I know we all feel broken-hearted. We hurt for Johnny, for each other. We have to stay strong for him, he needs us. We need to lean on God, He wants to help us. He wants to take our pain away so we can be productive for Johnny. Keep praying!!
