Cody was supposed to go down for his CT Scan but a higher priority patient came in so he got bumped. It'll be after shift change when and if they do it. Yesterday he couldn't follow the nurses finger in front of him but today he did! It was amazing to see his Baby Blues wide open. He has been bending his knees like crazy and adjusting his upper body trying to get comfortable. Karla told him to behave and he's had his warning about getting out of bed. Physical therapy had him at the edge of the bed but he had just gotten some Morphine so he was pretty wobbly. Speech was also there today doing the swallow test. They asked him to bite down on a spoon and he did. His throat is still pretty soar so they left the feeding tube in him for now.
We just got back from taking Ady and Reese back there. The nurses said what they saw was amazing. He did so well with having them back there. We told him Reese was blowing him kisses and Cody puckered his lips!! We cheered and got excited like we had won the Super Bowl!!!!! They told us to do it a few times a day because it is great therapy.
God is amazing and I see just how so when I step into Cody's room. Your prayers are working. Please keep praying. Pray that Cody becomes more alert and begins to speak. We aren't pushing any of this because we know he needs time and rest. Getting him convinced to rest has been difficult! He's says he's not tired but he can barely keep his eyes open! We love God for answering our prayers and we love each of you for praying. Please continue!
