August 16, 2015 Sunday/Sonday

His special ordered sand bed arrived a day early - so we will pretend he's on a beach in.....well all sorts of beautiful beach locations. He slept all of the day except for a few brief episodes of sudden eye openings & alertness. He continued to eye track when he was awake. He was still off the Propofol when I left @ 1015p & did very well with the myoclonus starting to occur about 20 minutes before his evening dose of Klonopin & was able to return back to sleep by 1005p. My sister will be driving to Cleveland tomorrow to sit with me at his bedside. She will be able to hold Perry's hand at intervals, so I can begin to get going on the many things I need to be accomplishing via computer. A special thank you to our sons & Perry's brothers, Nick & Jim, for all of their assistance with getting mail to us, setting up accounts, & taking over the bill paying responsibilities in the interim of the last 3 weeks. An enormous thank you to all of those who have donated to Perry's Transplant Fund, for gifts received, & for sending special treats to the staff caring for Perry & other patients in the CVICU, for the cards with comforting sentiments, & for being with us on this journey. Wishing everyone a good night's rest & the start to a week full of many blessings. We cannot thank everyone enough for the all of the continued prayers, love, & support!!! Monday, August 17 starts week 3 post-transplant. Please continue to pray for Perry's donor & the donor's family & friends.
