Ryan is now a full two days post-baclofen. Last night was much better, as all vital signs were normal and he seemed comfortable. I’m not sure what caused the increase in respiration the night before… and probably never will. I’m still concerned that the antibiotic isn’t knocking out the urinary tract infection. Granted, he is not showing any outward signs of discomfort, but his urine is still testing positive for leukocytes and nitrites.
As for his day yesterday, I didn’t notice anything odd or concerning. He flew right through all his therapies. I took him on to the patio around four o’clock and we didn’t come back in until around nine that night. It was wonderful and the temperature stayed in the seventies the entire time (with low pollen). I threw some chicken on the grill for Sue and the nurse (with asparagus and yellow squash) and a steak for me.
We I cookout at least three times a week now. I included a picture for you culinary satisfaction of the steak, salmon, and shrimp I did a few nights back. Notice the plating! We all sat around the patio table and ate with just a dim light and the glow of the half-moon. I could have stayed out all night (preferably with beer on ice).
I was encouraged to see (although not official) that he appeared more alert throughout the neuro-feedback session with IBRF yesterday morning. For now, I’ll just consider this an anomaly unless it repeats itself over the next several sessions. Good news is, the next one is tomorrow morning so we’ll be gathering another data point quickly.
It still is true that I won’t breath any easier until tomorrow at this time.
