Default Keith's Progress

When I visited Keith this morning, he was in some sort of lounge chair. It helps expand the lungs when you've been in bed over a week ,as he has. He walked a couple of steps and started a soft diet today. Still drugged, though.

A neurologist examined Keith this evening and declared that Keith is doing well. It was a close call. The doctor said that Keith was really lucky, because people who have as many seizures as he did, often suffer brain damage. Tomorrow, the plan is to reduce the phenobarbitol so that he is more wakeful and alert. Keith has been seizure free for 96 hours now.

Before all this began, we planned to spend our 33rd wedding anniversary in San Diego at the end of June. The doctor said, "We'll play it by ear, but he's doing so well, it's very possible."

The down side is that the things that we want to return the most quickly, memory and personalty, are the slowest to come back. But the doctor has high hopes for him because he's progressing well. So I have a lot to be thankful for, and I hope that everyone will give thanks in their prayers for Keith for a full recovery.

Judy

Thank you Judy, for keeping us all updated on Keith's progress. The waiting is the hardest part, I know because I just got off the phone with my mom and she is suffering panic attacks waiting for the Dr. to call with the final results and prognosis of her lung cancer. If we don't hear by tomorrow, we'll call him!
Keeping you and Keith in my prayers Judy, hang in there, things are looking up!

To Judy and Donna: Prayers will continue to come from here for both of you and your loved ones.

Keith's progress sounds optimistic and hopefully Donna's mom will have some results soon and they will start treatment soon and get her on the road to recovery too.

Have faith and courage, both of you - God will provide the strength.
