It’s 11:21 PM. Before Ellen walked out the door Danny gave her a hand squeeze. She was so excited she ran out to tell the nurse. It brought a big smile to my face and to hers as well. He started to reach for the PEG tube, but we had to hold his hands back. His blood pressure, oxygen, etc. are starting to stabilize. Cindy, our night nurse, said that maybe tomorrow the doc will let his temperature come up. This would mean less shivers and hopefully less use of the paralytics. The paralytic medicine paralyzes Danny to decrease movement and stabilize his ICP. Right now he is kept around 36.1 degrees Celsius which is 96.98 degrees Fahrenheit. The human body is at roughly 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep up the healing Danny!
