But, he is awake and active (despite the two picks below) or trying to be. Below is Caroline and Eli playing doctor to Joey, trying to put special healing water on him. Caroline wonders if Dr. Suess has been in to see him.
These pictures were after his MRI. It was at 7:15p when they went in and he was exhausted but somehow two doses of sedatives weren't enough and he woke up 5 times and was given a total of 5 doses of sedatives. Then, in order to transfer him from ER to RTU we had to wake him up (it is now 10:30pm) and make sure he is ok and then try and get him back to sleep. Fun stuff. But, the nurses here know their stuff and are exceptional.
This is Joe at 8:30a this morning. He is a bit wary of his surroundings but woke up happy for a bit. This is the only time you will most likely ever see him with chubby cheeks, the neck brace helps with that. He has tried to nap but you know hospitals, if they aren't checking his vitals then someone is emptying the trash bins, so he is having a rough time.
We are just trying to figure things out, but it is baffling. I am not too proud too ask for many prayers.
Love the Trauma doc, he looks, listens, ponders. We are going to xray his left side, the neck brace is off. We are going to go home most likely today even with no improvement so that maybe he can get the rest he needs at home. We may not see improvement for a couple of days, maybe a week. He is hapy with the brace off, just super tired. I'm a little frustrated. I know kids fall all the time, but I blame myself and am a little frustrated with the uncertainty. CRAP!!!
