It is almost 11pm and the intensive care waiting room is unusually quiet. Everyone who waits in this room has a unique bond of sadness. All brought here because of something completely out of our control that has in one way or another altered the lives of our loved ones.
Since this morning , Jackie’s pain meds have increased again. Because the level of sedation drugs have been dropped, they want to ensure he is not in pain. This helps keep his blood pressure down especially when they move him.
Another win – Jackie’s cerebral draining tubes were removed! Swelling can still occur but we are headed in the right direction.
He continues to have positive reflex tests and it is still remaining a balancing act to keep his body and brain as quiet as possible.
We cannot tell you how moved we are with the outpouring of love and support from all of you. We could not get through this without you. Please continue to pray for small victories as they will get Jackie to the finish line.
