Maybe tomorrow

Well, today was much better. Dermot slept thru the night and woke up looking much better. He was talking a lot today, I got a mat and stretched him out and did some sit-ups. Then the therapy dog Buddy came to visit. He's a little Welsh Corgi. What a nice surprise to have a dog at the hospital, the kids seemed to really enjoy him.

Dermot also played for a while. The ward has a chair just like the blue one we have at home, so Dermot could sit and play. We read some books that our friend Lisa dropped by and we sang for a while too. The doctor wanted to see how his system responds to the Bicitra medication before letting him come home. I'll feel better when I know it's working. So we will most likely bring Dermot home early Sunday afternoon.

I just returned from the grocery store with all the new foods on Dermot's menus: mayonaise, heavy whipping cream, butter, cheese, etc...Weird huh?

We've seen some promising results as far as seizure activity goes, they've been reduced dramatically so far. We're keeping our fingers crossed.
