i had some time alone with him today, away from monster in law and nurses, i leaned in close to jay and whispered "i said biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitch, you best be waking up and kicking some ass."

later, a neurologist tech came to maintain the eeg, and after she left, she took me aside with a big smile, and whispered "i said biiiiiiiiiiitch, the camera recording your husband's activity has audio as well.", winked and giggled, and went on her way.

oh, simple joys. :mrgreen:


:lol: so glad he's on the road to recovery. Lots of love to you all <3

he's doing much better today! they removed the breathing tubes and expect him to be completely off of help with oxygen within the next hour or so, lowered his sedation level even more, and are moving him out of icu tomorrow. he still hasn't spoken, which may take a while. there are some abnormalities in the area of the brain where he had the encephalitis, but that should heal and get back to normal as the swelling continues to go down.
as far as we've been told, it may take some time for his memory to return, so it could be a long process, but all signs lead to full recovery, eventually. :yippee: when he gets out of the icu and off the eeg, i can take the girls to see him, which they've been waiting eagerly for.
thank you to everyone that's sent an ecard. i read georgi and ttb's to him yesterday. he might have been falling asleep, so i tantric stared the messages to him. ;)
:mrgreen: every day is better than the last, and that's all i can ask for. :mrgreen:

Thats great! blessings to you all - has the Drs determined if this has to do w/ his diabetes? I'm only curious b/c my hubby has been having all kinds of complications lately with his - after keeping it pretty stable for 17 years - it's been an uphill battle lately - I wish you all well! Merry Christmas.

so, while he's still improving on a daily basis, the prognosis is: he's still in a state of delirium and will continue to be so for a long time. they're saying, in cases like his, he will likely continue improving, little by little, until about the 3 month mark, where he'll plateau for a while before continuing on the path to recovery. they're telling us that he's going to need to be in an acute therapy hospital setting for a year. he probably won't remember any of this time, and we're still being told he can make a full recovery. it's just going to take a long time.
he's keeping a good attitude about everything. he was approved yesterday to walk without a walker, but needs supervision when outside of his room due to the fact that he's very forgetful and easily gets disoriented.
the facility has also told us that we should keep our visits with him short (like 10-20 minutes), because his brain is in overdrive and having to be "on" and responding to us in between therapy exhausts him and could thwart the whole process. out of this entire ordeal, this is what breaks my heart the most.
he's got a very good team there, and they're trying hard to get to the root of what caused this to happen in the first place. tomorrow he's being tested for celiac disease, because his mother has it, and apparently you can be a celiac w/o the digestion issues. it can go straight to your brain. wtf?!?!
anyway, thanks for all of your support through this very hard time. :heart:
