British Columbia, Canada
This is my son, his wife, and two girls.
I can't thank all of you enough for these kinds words, and tonight I think I needed to see these. Today was the 4th day after his accident, and according to the doctor the very worst in this type of accident, as it was the "peak swelling" day. Todd was in severe pain, and extremely withdrawn today. He is having cognitive troubles and drifts in and out of making sense, and can't seem to stay awake at all, and this is not good. Tomorrow they will try to keep him awake longer somehow, and get him up to the chair or on a walker. Bruising a brain is serious business, and it is going to take some time to get him back to us the way he was I am sure, but I have my entire lifetime to wait, and so does his family and we are positive he will make it back. I am hopeful with this new doctor he will progress much faster. He does have CT scans every day and sometimes twice a day to make sure the swelling is at least the same, or going down, as well as MRI's. I just wish someone would say something really positive, well maybe tomorrow. Next week some of his stitches will come out so less bandages, etc. will be nice.
Again, thank you so kindly, and I will see that my daughter-in-love sees these lovely prayers and thoughts too, as she too has a large circle of friends praying for Todd.
Kacy - Todd is going to be 100% you just watch!
Maureen - You hang in there you hear, and love that sister all you can, even if she says to go away!
