If I had a flower
For every time I thought about you,
I could walk forever in my garden.
-Claudia Ghandi (From Danielito)

Hello everyone,
Day # 48
Daniel rested all day long, I hardly saw him open his eyes. The nurse today was very friendly and I spent some time talking with her about the many things I should be looking for when Daniel is transferred to a skilled nursing facility. Margarita and I talked with Dr. Tantawaya today, and as always he really had nothing to say other than the flap will be put back later this week. (Now, that is exciting for me, I want Daniel to be put back together again!) Dr. says maybe by Friday, First, they need to see if his culture comes back clean. Daniel is having a lot of secretions coming from his lungs. So, when that is clear, Daniel will go back into the OR. Shunt seems to be working good and will fluctuate from time to time. Dr. says this can be due to gravity, when Daniel is seated in an upward position.
His heart-rate still goes up dramatically and then falls down to a normal rate. They are giving medication for these episodes (storming).
