Cody is running a slight fever and his pulse is elevated. The nurse explained it to me like this--When you cook something in a crock pot and it's done and you turn it off it will continue to get hot for a while and cook. He had fire inside him so they cooled him down for 24 hours and over the night they gradually warmed him up. So hopefully his body will realize it needs to stop! His pulse is high because of the elevated temperature and possibly because of pain. He has moved his head back and forth and has moved his legs and arms. He was on the sedative and paralytic medication for so long that we don't know how long it'll be before he wakes up. Everybody's body takes it differently. He could open his eyes in 2 hours or 2 days. No way to tell. We are consistenly telling him not to move for us. We don't need him to. We need him to lay there and relax and let his body heal and do the work for him. We thank each of you for praying. Please don't stop it's not over yet. You guys have helped perform a miracle. I believe that will all my heart.
