Mom arrived safely. It is SO good to have her here. I'm so grateful, and I know it was good for both her and David to get to SEE each other.
David is looking much better this morning than he did last night. Apparently the headache and nausea he was experiencing is to be expected as blood flow returns and the brain experiences some element of swelling. He still has the headache, but they are better able to manage it for him today than they were last night.
He was moved out of ICU this morning. He has a private room.
We have recognized another thing to add to our list of blessings and that is that the stroke occurred in a place in the brain that did not affect his personality or cognition. He is so himself - so positive - taking it all in stride. This would be so much harder were he not able to be who he is.
He is gaining more ability to move. He still cannot tell what movement he is making if he is not looking at his limb, but he can now almost touch his hand to his face, and he was nowhere near being able to do that last night. So we are encouraged by the progress.
We are also encouraged that this is being pursued so aggressively. Tomorrow he will have that internal echocardiogram, and if that does not show enough for them to discern the cause they will send him to the Bay Area (UCSF?) to have more extensive testing done.
We are so thankful for all the love that has been and is being showed to us and for all the prayers being lifted up. We feel so supported!
