Justin ONe Week Update

Got this from the fish
"1 week update:

Good news! Justin is starting to come around. He has been taken off the ventilator and the cranial monitor. He's waking up occasionally and for very brief periods. When he's awake he moves most of his muscles himself (although quite a bit less on the right side) including reaching up to rub his head and pull at his monitor leads. Although he still doesn't track well or follow verbal directions much, yesterday he WAS able to respond to the question "Do you know your name?" by saying "Justin" and this morning he added the last name "Justin Metcalf". It's not much yet, but considering where he's been for the last week it's incredible! His mother, his doctors, and I are thrilled. It shows the synapses and connections in his brain are starting to reconnect. Progress is expected to increase as time passes.

It's still likely he'll need surgery on the pelvis fracture, but the timing for that depends on when the neurosurgeons will allow it. More on that later.

Thanks for the cards, visits and phone calls. Keep hoping for a full recovery.


Best wishes again and hope your back to normal as soon as possible.
