Thursday, April 25, 2010. 11:00am. Day 4

Sorry I'm just now getting an update on here this morning. We weren't able to see Cody until 8:00 and my computer was still in the trailer. Today is going to be a long day! A tough one for Bubba. He has fluid on his lungs again. It is more than likely from the vent and from being prone for so long. They are monitoring it and suctioning him out every 2 hours. A neurologist is going to be coming by to do some preliminary tests to check his brain function. They did open his eyes and check his pupils and they dialated. The occupational and physical therapy will be here today to move his limbs around. They are going to change out all his lines today to prevent infections. That is going to get him all worked up. He has been doing little movements; moving his right shoulder up and down, opened his mouth almost like a yawn, and moving jaw back and forth. His hand rolled a little also. We are still not able to give him any stimulation. Poor mom, when she goes in and whispers to him his heart rate goes up. Cody has always worried about mom. I know for a fact that when she is in there talking to him and trying to console him that he's trying so hard to tell her "Mom, I'm fine. Don't worry about me!" Yesterday when he started coming out of the sedation he would have these tremor type of things. He tenses up and it looks like he's shivering really bad. Yesterday it would only last for 5-10 minutes. This morning he did it and it lasted almost 45 minutes. They don't think they are seizures. There's alot it could be. He seems to be pretty tolerant of things right now and resting.

Lots of prayers have been said by us this morning and we still need more. Please keep praying.

"I have told you these things, that in me you may have peace. In the world you have oppression; but cheer up! I have overcome the world." John 16:33


  1. Prayers coming in from liberal hospital. I have many co-workers here at the hospital praying for cody jo. Stay strong!

  2. Still thinking of Cody and your family. Your faith in Jesus Christ is the only thing that matters in life. If you have that, everything else will fall into place.
    I like the song you posted; one of my favorites is "What Faith can do" by Kutless.

    Will continue to send prayers upward.
