Rachael talked with the Doctor that ordered Jimmie's MRI today. The Doctor basically just said that she observed how stable he is and that it's time to start wrapping things up and working towards discharge. An MRI is one of the things that has to be done for Jimmie, so she just thought she'd get it out of the way! Okay! WOW we are cool with that. The best possible explanation after a bit of a worrisome time because of the surprise of it. The Doctor also said the radiologist said his brain looked great so there was nothing more to say about the results.
They also put him on a prongless cannula today. They want to make sure his nasal passages handle that okay in preperation to go home on oxygen. He is on a half liter of flow at 50% oxygen.
And the Doctor wrote an order for the night nurse to give Jimmie some bottles to really start ramping up his feeds by mouth!
The theme for today was definitely working towards home! How awesome and amazing is that??! I have tears in my eyes just typing about it. I cannot wait for that day.
Lets start praying "home prayers"!
P.S. April thank you for your tape idea. Rachael is trying a few different things and is grateful for your experienced suggestion.
