We found out some answers today as to why Rick may have had a seizure. He was running a little fever this morning, and when Krisann (NP student) came in she asked me how he was doing and I said I was concerned about his cough, or lack there of. He keeps trying to cough and can't really seem to get any force behind it. She immediately ordered a chest x-ray. When the results came back they said negative, but Krisann was not convinced. She called them back and said, "read it again." This time they said pneumonia...not a bad case, but I'm so thankful she called them back so we can nip this in the bud right away. Today was also Krisann's last day. It's amazing how attached you can get to folks in a months time...she's seen Rick almost every day that we've been here and we will miss her. Rick is also very dehydrated. The dehydration and pneumonia could have triggered the seizure. I hate that Rick has anything else wrong, but at the same time it's good to know that there was something that caused it, and he's not necessarily going to start having seizures 6 months after his injury. He went to therapy today, but wasn't exactly a ball of fire. He ate good and they started IV fluids and antibiotics...I feel like tomorrow he'll feel like a new man! And, you wouldn't think anything positive could come from a seizure, but today, he was so loose and Chel'C took advantage of it and stretched him...especially his neck. So once again God shows us that we have to trust him...he knows what's best in all situations.
We got a lot of very nice Christmas cards today and Kim Streit sent pictures from the team roping and they were fun to look at...who knew Stoney could grow a beard?!!!
