I finished talking to the doctor and we have our marching orders for the day. As I mentioned in the previous update, the doctors are encouraged by Claire’s progress. We still don’t know the extent of her injuries, but we’re headed in the right direction.
We have an MRI scheduled for 12:30 PM CDT today which will give us more data to analyze. Claire will be further sedated to make sure she stays still for up to an hour while in the machine. We’ve been told to expect the test results within an hour after completing the MRI. I’ll post the results as soon as we get them.
The doctor also told us that he’d like to have Claire off the ventilator completely by the close of the day today. We’ll continue to watch her progress and adjust that plan as necessary.
The doctor’s words about her eyes when he did the test this morning were, “They are responding briskly.”
These varying sizes and degrees of steps have all be positive. The doctors continue to caution that we have a long journey ahead and we still have some looming questions. We hope to have some more clarity by the end of today.
As always, thank you for your prayers and support.
