I don't have alot to report so far today. The catscan was done first thing this morning and it looks like the brain is doing what it is supposed to be doing with the spinal fluid. The contusions are resolving, but that doesn't mean there's not still damage. We will probably move to the 6th floor, but there isn't a bed available right now.
As excited as I am about him being stable, I'm also apprehensive about the next steps. We've gotten very comfortable with the nurses in ICU and Dr. Mercer. Of course, as long as Rick is here, Dr. Mercer will continue to be his doctor, but the day will come when we move on from here and as much as I wish he could, Dr. Mercer can't come with us.
Riley is here today, and it is so good to see her. She needs some mom/daughter time, so we are going to eat at Chili's in a minute. Since Dr. Mercer said Rick is stable, I don't feel so afraid to leave.
Dr Mercer reminded me again that we are in a marathon. Thank y'all for continuing to send me messages and inspiration.
A NOTE FROM MISS RILEY:
Dad I know you are going to be okay.And plenty of people are praying for you.Every Sunday more than plenty of prayers are going up to the Lord.You will heal and this won't last forever it just seems like it.LUV U.
