Cale is moving his head more. He moved his arm. He's squeezing Kathleen's hand more often, especially when she talks to him. His eyes are not open but we can see his eye moving underneath his eyelid. The Intracranial Pressure (ICP) monitor was taken out a couple hours ago. His ICP has been low and very good for so long now that the doctors feel confident it will not go up again. Also, he has a continuous EEG monitor on, monitoring his brain activity. The doctors have told us they want it above 20 and that when it remains above 40, he should be regaining consciousness. The level is at times between 16-20. When he is talked to, it begins to rise into the high 20s, low 30s. It is also spiking at times. The highest was last night. Joe and TJ were sitting with Cale and talking to him and the monitor showed 53. Praise God!
Adding to the injury list, Cale does have pelvic fractures as well. The doctors have not operated on any of the broken bones yet. They are hoping to have all the operations done by the end of the week. When these are taken care of, they will transfer him to a rehab unit which specializes in Cale's type of head trauma. Keep praying for continued improvement.
