Sorry it has taken so long to update the blog, but things have been kind of crazy for me. We have had some tough days, and tough moments, but we are still progressing overall. Randy picked up a stomach virus, that had us all on guard, but he seems to be getting over it just fine. I am still seeing progress in his recovery, though it is a very slow process, and seems to be good one day and not as good the next. He has some days that he is not very responsive, and other days that he seems to be very alert and sharp. Sometimes it is due to the medication, and sometimes not. We are finally getting somewhat routine with his care, though some days are pretty trying. We are still having to teach the nursing staff how to care for him at times. This is very frustrating for all of us, but we know that "THIS TOO, SHALL PASS!"
We have an appointment to go back to Lubbock on May 13th for a consultation with his doctor. We should be finding out when he will return again for the bone flap surgery, and more details about his progression at that time. He is still in physical therapy, occuapational therapy and speech therapy, and we are continuing to make baby steps.
I am really tired tonight, so I'll close for now. Thank you all again for staying tuned to the blog. It really does mean a lot to me to see how many of you are still checking in, and are continuing to pray for Randy's recovery.
