Last night was uneventful and his vitals were stable. We heard from the neurologist that their recommendation was to keep Perry sedated for 48 hours without any seizures. He is on 2 anti-seizure medications and 1 sedative that assist with with seizures currently. 48 hours would be 6 PM ET today without any seizures. However, they would prefer to start weaning him off of the sedative now so he can have the entire day staff available to monitor him and we can have most of the specialists in the hospital at a moment's notice should any complications/concerns arise. Weaning off the sedative can take a few hours.
Today is a very big day, so please pray for response to commands, recognition and comfort of his family, his fears be eased and no additional setbacks. Thank you all again.
