Well today was another roller coaster of a day, and so far has seemed to have ended on a high. We have met so many doctors and nurses that it kind of makes my head swim, but they all seem to have a great deal of focus on Jason and his recovery, and the head doctor, Dr. Malone, has been great about keeping us up dated.
Jason had to go in for more "clean up" surgery and it took several hours to accomplish. Before he went in they provided us with some of the details of what they wanted to do, and basically what they expected to find (the down). We had to wait about six and a half hours, when they were completed to find out that what they found was much better than they had thought they would find and they only had to remove a smaller amount of tissue. Though we don't want ANY more removed the fact that only a smaller area was showing signs of infection showed that Jason's body was fighting back and doing a good job of it (the high).
Jason still can not speak, and is still in a drug induced comma, but we are hopeful that he will be able to show that he can breath on his own through the night and into tomorrow. Then they will begin taking the breather off of him. We are vary anxious to be able to speak with him, but even after it is removed it may take a day or two for him to be able to communicate. I will continue to provide posts and updates as they come. Right now we're headed back over to be with him. Thank you all for your continued support.
