Jai here again. Yesterday Kevin was doing great although by the end of the day with having just family visiting he was exhausted. So I'm hoping he got a good nights sleep last night. We may have to do something to co-ordinate visits when he's ready for others to start seeing him so we don't wear him out. So if I seem to be protecting him by not letting everyone in right away, well.... I am. But I hope everyone will understand. He will be a hard one to keep down because he loves everyone and does like to visit.
He did get moved out of ICU just after lunch yesterday so he has a nice room up in the neuro trauma care center. It has a south facing window overlooking Bush park, so he got to see the sun shining.
What else can I tell you at this point. Just time to let him rest and recover and heal and - Oh yeah, took his computer in for him. So he can listen to music. I was reading the other day that music actually helps heal brain injuries and surgeries. Something about the music helps the brain to rebuild the neuro pathways. This isn't the same article I read but it's from the same foundation if I remember correctly (and my memory is quite questionable these days):
Ok, so I woke up with the beginnings of a migraine this morning but the medicine is startinig to work now so I'm going to get ready to go see him. Maybe I'll have some new news for you in awhile.
It's me, Kevin, but with a brain tumor. Disclaimer: I have a very dry and twisted sense of humor. This is a scary situation. The jokes ("tumor humor") could be a little dark from time to time. I intend to keep this rather interesting for you, but if I get a "how could you SAY that?!?" response from you, know it's just, well, I hesitate to use "gallows" humor, but I don't have better phrase for it. Enjoy, and thanks for your support through this time.
