Day 50, wow, David is improving everyday. They have cut back on his seraquel again. That is a good thing because he is more awake and aware everyday, but, it's also a bad thing. He is more aware of the pain now too. They are trying to not give him Tramadol during the day, just at night. He does take Tylenol during the day, especially just before physical therapy. 

He still has some vision issues, but, this facility received a grant to do a study with some new exercises and equipment to help with vision anamolies from traumatic brain injuries. David is part of that study now. It seems to be helping. His peripheral vision is definitely improving. He still has some depth perception issues, but, I see improvement in that also. His balance is improving slowly. He no longer uses a walker, just someone holding his belt just in case. His team will meet again Tuesday to assess how he is doing. 

With the reduction of his meds he is also aware of the fact that he can't eat whatever he wants and he is ready to go home. ME TOO!

    This is awesome! So thankful and glad to hear this! Have they said anything about his vision considering he doesn’t have his glasses? I’m sure they probably have, but just wondering. Prayers for continued healing and guidance for the next steps! Love you both so much! Kay

      The main problem with his vision is he has what he calls blank spots occasionally. They seem to be worse on his right side and when he is getting tired. They realize he doesn't have his glasses, it's the blank spots and peripheral vision they are working on.

    I love hearing this progress!!!! I know it’s been a very long, hard road...... don’t rush.... you are almost at the finish line!!! Get as much rehab there as possible!! Sound too anxious and they may dc early!! Be sure everything is 100% before you leave..... too hard to go back!! (Speaking from someone who knows “the system”) Looking really good you two!!!
