Good morning. Yesterday they turned off Aaron's sedation but the pain medication that he is getting still kept him pretty groggy. He was able to nod his head in response to a couple simple questions that Angie asked him. One of the questions she asked him was if he was in any pain and he nodded no, thank God.
The respiratory therapist was in and gave him a breathing treatment which was the first time for that. He is breathing on his own now so they will be focusing on strengthening his lungs with these treatments.
While they were changing his dressings yesterday the nurse said that from his movements she was surprised at how strong he still was even after being in bed for the better part of two weeks now. The Dr. said that by the end of the week they hope to have him in rehabilitation. We are not sure exactly what kind of rehabilitation.
Your prayers are so helpful to Aaron, and again, we so appreciate all of them. Lynn at Raising Little Shoots has a lovely post about strength. That is where I got the above picture.
