When I got to the hospital this morning the nurse had interesting stories to tell me about Cale. Since the trach is out, they've been trying to leave him unmitted as much as possible but as I wrote before, he gets into so much trouble! Well, he did last night! He pulled out the tube that inserts into his feeding tube, while he was being fed, so all of his meal was all over the bed! He made a really big mess! He also decided he didn't like the bandage that was covering his trach site! I did get to see the area this morning while kit was off and it's already healed! The body is such an amazing thing! It's just scabbed so they keep a gauze with Vaseline over it to keep the area moist. In a few days that will be off and hopefully he'll be a little more restful :)
He was supposed to get an MRI done on his nose yesterday but when I left today it still wasn't done. They found out after the accident that he has a mass in his nose, this explains lots of problems he has had with his nose! They also want to check the facial fractures and see how they're healing.
Exciting thing! When PT and OT were in this morning, again everyday they sit him on the side of the bed, and try to get him to hold his head up and balance himself. When they let go of him, they want there to be some sign that he's trying to hold himself up, today, he did it! They always put his hand on the railing to start and he takes it off. When he does this he starts to tip...
Here's a 15sec video to show you!
Also! Today is 9 weeks since the accident and a perfect day to get a puppy! Yes! I got one :) He's crazy adorable! He's a boxer and 5 months old. He's already kennel trained, which is so nice! We went on a nice walk this afternoon, and an interesting run this evening. He's a character! Haha! I named him Basil. I think Cale is going to shake his head at me when he wakes up and hears what I've named out first dog :) I think Basil and I are going to become dear friends.
