Tonight update

Eben has woke up twice. 

The first time, he woke up and asked to eat. The nurse and I sat him up his pressures plummeted and his eyes rolled back in his head and he passed out. This brought the whole team into evaluate what was going on. He was unresponsive and failed his neuro checks. They prepared him for an emergency CT and shunt series. 

At 8pm, the nurse and I was finally able to get him to respond.  He said he needed to go the bathroom. We sat him up and his pressures plummeted and he passed out.  the nurses and I got him back to bed. When he came back around as Kiah and Blessing were getting here. I really think that perked him up. Kiah was able to bring him some potatoes she roasted and he ate some. He talked to Bart and now he back to sleep. 

This is what the doctors are saying. They are going to hourly neuro-checks. His heart rate is out of "Brady?", but is still destressed over the fluctuations in pressure. They are concerned with the CT and are going to repeat it in the morning. His right side is not moving. He has very minimal strength in his hand and his right leg isn't moving at all. 

We are praising God for the moments he is with us. It's the scariest thing he is here then he's gone.

Thank you all for praying. Your prayers are making us brave.
