Update - Joy

Cale's heart rate & blood pressure continue to be elevated. He is now on a constant morphine drip to assist in lowering the heart rate and helping with pain. Another scan was done of his brain and there is some more swelling, everyone who goes into his room now are to remain as calm and quiet as possible. He was put back on a ventilator today, the doctors said it is not because he can't breathe on his own, but they want to ease his effort. There are preventive steps being taken to guard against meningitis and there is also the possibility of bone marrow emboli due to the fractured femur. The last two issues are not definite problems, but the doctors are looking at everything in a preventive aspect.
