Andrew had a good night last night, getting some solid sleep and eating well! He's now able to eat regular foods and swallowing pills with water (he was even requesting guacamole!). The doctor did say that we will be keeping Andrew in the ICU today as well. This is not due to any problems or issues, but mainly because Andrew has such great constant care from the nurses in ICU- and that is important. However, the doctor does think that he is nearly ready to flit off to a rehabilitation center and start working working working to get better. Andrew has received flowers and cards, which is so kind- he worked on opening the cards himself (which is difficult, because he still has limited control of his hands and fingers) and that is all great "occupational therapy".
The family has also received support and food from so many of you, during their stay in the ICU waiting room, and it has really been a blessing. We have pretty much camped out in the waiting room and made it our own little apartment- things would have been a lot less comfortable without your support. We cannot thank you all enough.
