Mark had a good night and day today. His CT scan was stable again, which means no new bleeding or increased swelling. He was physically active today, moving his arms and legs and also crossing his legs. He opened his eyes and mouth and moved his head back and forth while my friend Kim was there with me. We were both talking to him as he was furrowing his eye brows at us. I left the room for a minute and Kim said it seemed he knew I had left. It was exciting! He keeps pulling his pulse/ox monitor off his finger, evidently it irritates him.
The neurosurgeon determined he is stable enough for the reconstructive surgery for his left cheek bone tomorrow. This is good news as his stability has increased enough to go back under anesthesia.
We will report on his surgery and his bionic-man face as soon as we can tomorrow!
