Sunday January 2nd, 2011

Josh had an uneventful night,
not needing any supplemental
sedatives. He is completely
off continuous sedation as of
this morning and has not
required supplemental doses
for storming. All through
this change, Josh has
remained very peaceful. It will
take several days before the
medication has completely
processed out of his system.

Josh still has brief storming
periods, but these are becoming
less severe and he recovers on his own.
From time to time he yawns big like a lion
and will even make a throaty Chewbacca growl.
Hopefully, this day will transition into another
calm evening. By morning, more doctors will be back
on staff and looking to assess Josh and make decisions
about the upcoming week.

Special thanks today to the Stadium Conditions Crew
for your special gift last week. We miss you all.

More later.

  5. Wandering around Longwood Gardens on New Year's Day, I was delighted to come upon Upattina's little Christmas tree entry... adorned with origami peace cranes. Not sure if ya'll had anything to do with it, but all the same, it made me smile and think of you.

    Peace, and continued healing...

    love, gina
