Yesterday was another busy day for Aaron. They changed his dressings and reported that there was no infection and the wounds looked like they were continuing to heal. His heart rate came down which means the fever had subsided. He needed to have is IV lines changed too to prevent infection around the old sites. We felt like it was a good day all in all.
As a little update I just want to add that he is still fully sedated and unable to communicate but he does seem peaceful looking in his sleep. The sand bed that he is resting on is really helping to keep him comfortable. Since they took the respirator tube out of his mouth and put in the treak (I don't know how to spell it) we can better see his face and they say that it makes him more comfortable too which of course is my primary concern.
Doug, Dana, Blake and Kyle all came down yesterday and have been a big help. Today after going to the hospital this morning Angie is heading up north to see the kids which though a lot of travel should be good for her and the babe's. Kyle and Doug are at the hospital now and will come back here for lunch and Dana and I will take the next shift.
Again, thank you all for your prayers, comments, e-mails and cards that mean so much to all of us and to Aaron most of all.
God bless you,
Sue and family
