Hope is necessary in every condition.
The miseries of poverty, sickness and captivity would,
without this comfort, be insupportable.
~ Samuel Johnson
A little late with this morning's update.
Daniel continues to have fair to good evenings, last night
he experienced another episode of fluctuating heart rates. It
was stabilized with some medication called LoPressa. Again,
he looks good ~ 'calm, dark and handsome'. They took a
sonogram of his legs to make sure he had no blood clots. The
result was negative- no clots. His blood pressure is good-
115 over 63 (better than my bp). Body temp one degree
above normal. Nurses check blood sugar several times a day-
this morning it was excellent - no insulin needed.
A reminder of the Glasgow Coma Scale - Daniel is evaluated
at least four times a day to determine any progress or
regression. His evaluation yields a score of 8 one day and 9 the
next. We're relieved that it hasn't fallen below 8. Hoping for the
day it gets up to 12 or full consciousness which is 15.
Stay tuned, I will update this later this evening.
