In addition to the physical changes, most importantly my precious Joe will not return in the capacity we would all hope for. His brain was without oxygen for too long. More than 4 minutes, much more. He is now breathing through the trach on his own without the help of the ventilator. His body is strong and showing signs of healing. Now is the wait for the brain to heal as much as it can. He is still mostly sleeping, with the help of meds to reduce the anxiety and reduce his pain. Monday he will have another go with an “eeg” and CAT scan.
To all who have asked if they can put him on their prayer list I full heartedly shout YES! And to anyone and everyone who pops in to read this, I ask for your prayers as well.
He had a loving time with this puppy that was dropped off at our home Saturday. Always so caring, loving and giving, this horrid depression that plagued him for all his life got the best of him. Hope is strong in his loving family that his brain will heal to a far greater extent. I find that I must stay in the moment for the most part but right now I am posting a photo of the past so that I can solicit all your prayers for healing you can send. His brain has lots of repairing to do and it is in God’s hands for now.
