They have finished the long 16 hour warming process
and Bronson is now at 36.4 degrees celsius,
and so far he is holding steady at regular body temperature.
They have taken off the top hypothermia blanket.
He is no longer getting a paralytic drip to keep his body medically paralyzed.
They have lowered the dose of sedative by half
to allow him to slowly wake up from his medically induced coma.
I am typing from his bedside and he is just now starting to flutter his eyes
and show reflexive movements, but nothing major yet.
Just as I typed that Matt saw fidgeting fingers and a few toe curls!
That is the first of the minor motor skills we have witnessed so far!
We have been advised to wait to really stimulate him until he is more fully awake.
We want to reserve his energy until he is alert enough to show us what he can really do.
We don't want to wear out his muscles before he is conscious.
I am signing off to go hold his little hand and sing.
"Do As I'm Doing" is his favorite! Sing with us!
Let's see what this guy can show us!
