Update 35

Good morning, afternoon, and/or evening depending on where you are following Jeremy's progress from. You may have heard throughout the day that Jeremy had some good, what we will call reflex reactions, today. He opened his eyes for a bit a few different times today. He is still quite heavily sedated so we are hope that those reactions will get stronger and more frequent as they wean off his sedation.

The drain to the ventricle in Jeremy's head was successfully replaced today without any complications. We are grateful that the procedure went well and did not cause any setbacks. Over the next few days, the weaning off of sedation will become more aggressive as his brain pressure will tolerate.

We had another conversation with one of the critical care physicians about Jeremy getting a Trach (a breathing tube in his neck) and a PEG tube (a feeding tube directly into his stomach). We are still hopeful that this will not be needed, but more than likely these procedures will take place the end of this week or the beginning of next.

Keep those prayers going! Thank you all for your love and support!
