Suebear he is only 52. He has high blood pressure and is overweight but no other signs of heart problems.
They took him off the paralyzing drug because they weren't getting the twitch results they would look for regularly. It did lower his temperature so he is back to breathing on his own with his low temperature and not shivering yet. They now have to wait for the paralyzing drug to leave his body to do the EEG and CT scan.
Did I mention that I hate waiting? I understand the reasoning but that doesn't make it easier.
I'm heading to the hospital now. I don't have internet on my phone (or a laptop) so I have to wait to either use my son's blackberry or come home later.
Keep those prayers coming please.
