Danny to continue to impress

Tuesday December 4, 2012

Written 1 hour ago

All that the doctors, nurses, therapists, and surgeons can say is that they are very impressed with the progress Danny has made! We want Danny to continue to impress them!

The swelling in Danny’s brain is starting to go down. The sooner, the better, and then the neurosurgeon will be able to reinsert his skull. He has been accepted to go to Dodd Hall, which is phenomenal! That’s the best scenario in which we could ask! Once he is moved there, which will happen tomorrow, according to the information we received today, he will get 3-4 hours per day of intense therapy. WE ARE STILL REQUESTING DANNY HAVE NO VISITORS DUE TO LOW IMMUNE SYSTEM.

Today, we handed Danny a wedding photo of he and Karen. He pulled it up to his face and held it there. It was a very touching moment. Then he looked over at his mom and gave her a “Dutch rub!” Pretty funny, Danny!

Our prayer requests today:
*Danny’s lung infection clears up (better today than yesterday!)
*Danny’s brain and brain stem will completely heal
*Danny will not become too frightened or frustrated as he becomes more aware of his surroundings and doesn’t understand where he is or why he is there, and what has happened to his body.
*Landon will heal quickly from his walking pneumonia, and Emmaretta will heal quickly from her ear infection, and Mommy (Karen) stays healthy.
*Danny will have an easy transition moving to Dodd Hall.

Ephesians 6:10 reads, “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might.” Our family is relying on God for His strength to get Danny through this, and for our family as well. Thank you all for your prayers!

    I used to be one of the Dodd 4th floor night nurses (rotator cuff tear meant I couldn’t go back). Danny is in a GREAT place! The staff throughout is fantastic, (nursing AND therapies). Hoping for a great outcome!

    My son spent 6 weeks at Dodd Hall in june/july 2000 while recovering from a traumatic brain injury. There is no better facility for the type of care they provide. I don’t know this young man, but have been keeping him and his family in my prayers. Thank you, Carol, for all you did while there. It is an amazing, miraculous, uplifting place.
