I hope this is not just wishful thinking, but I feel Ryan has put together a string of good days. He seems much more at ease, with infrequent signs of discomfort. His nights are equally as uneventful.
Ryan’s body temperature has moved back to a more normal baseline. Since the beating he has been running a little cold, but was subject to wild temperature swings. These swings came on without notice and took hours to resolve. Lately, he is staying fairly stable.
Likewise, his pulse is normalizing. He generally is running in the upper-60’s or low seventies. Many might recall he use to sustain a heart rate around 120. In conjunction, his blood pressure is solid, with the systolic usually below 120. This, to me, is a clear indication that he is suffering less. At least, I hope so.
The days of moaning in agony are fewer and further between. His body tone is noticeably less rigid. His face appears relaxed. He no seldom winces in pain, causing his jaw to lock open.
He looks more like my son.
