Journal entry by Stephanie Duncan

Today was a busy day, but in a good way. 

Robert was more tired today, but he had much more going on as far as visitors and evaluations goes, so he’s expected to be more tired. 

The nurse told Danielle that early this morning he wanted to sit up and they moved a little too fast and got nauseated and threw up. This is to be expected because he hasn’t moved in a few days AND has a brain injury. 

Not surprising news, but Robert still wants to go home and leave :). We want him to as well! But he has a little ways to go before that can happen. 

Physical therapy came by today a few times to test Robert’s strength. He did pretty well and was able to move to the chair for a few hours. 

He doesn’t have much of an appetite but Danielle is trying to encourage him to take bites to help build up his strength. 

He went for another CT, and the results are still pending. 

The drains were removed! There are stitches in their place with no residual bleeding! 

Danielle offered him food from the hospital and some fast food and he was not having it :( but we will try again tomorrow to get him to eat more. 

Thank you for all of your prayers!
