Around 2 am, the doctors thought giving Colby an enema might help his digestive track move along a bit and maybe help with some of his discomfort. That happened around 2:30. Things...well..moved along and for one reason or another, he didn't toss and turn much afterwards until around 5am when another doctor came in to check on him.
For the first time in about a day, he opened his eyes and looked around. He responded to my voice. His eyes followed the doctor as he walked around the room. So it was a pleasant surprise to see him more awake and responsive this morning!
Results continue to come back...all with labels of being "normal".
They are going to tap his shunt this morning as well as start doing tests for less common reasons why he might have been so out of it. Although I'm happy and quite relieved that he's showing signs of imporement, I hope they can in some way find out what caused Colby so much trouble over the last couple days.
I came directly from work yesterday afternoon wearing a button up shirt, dress pants, dress shoes, etc. Tracey went home to get me a change of clothes for the evening. I guess I forgot to mention that I needed flip flops or sneakers. So she came back with PJ bottoms, a couple t-shirts....but nothing for my feet. The cafeteria opens at 6am here in the hospital. And they have Starbucks coffee....thank god! I'll be standing outside the gate, wearing blue PJ bottoms, a t-shirt, hat....and dress shoes.....silently waiting for them to raise the gate to the cafeteria!
