Danny is normally a pretty chill guy. Today, however, his behavior was far from chill. He’s tapping his hand up and down, moving his feet off his bed, and yawning an awful lot. He’s keeping the staff busy by repositioning himself in the bed and keeps us entertained with the new progress. I was talking to him earlier and he lifted his hand up on my shoulder. I kept talking and he started to rub/scratch my shoulder. I told him thank you for the shoulder rub and he clumsily let go and dropped his hand to his side with some of my hair in it. Ellen also got a head scratch. His eyes open more regularly and blink and he had a few tear drops which he was able to wipe off himself. Danny is movin’! The doctor said that this is regular. There is a possibility that he’ll be agitated for a while, but it’s totally normal behavior. He’s brought a lot of smiles to his room today and some good laughs with the shoulder rubs and head scratches. Keep it up Danny!!
