January 8, 2009 Today was a day filled with laughter, tears and silly reminiscing of good times. It has been fun to see all the people that are following our blog and joined our "Fans of Ted McArthur" club on facebook. The Doctor talked with us about putting in a "Tracheotomy" to help protect his airway and to make him more comfortable. He is still in a coma and there is still no sign of brain activity. We all feel that he is just hanging out with the angels and visiting for the time being. He has to come back to us, we still need him! Mom still needs him! We have limited the visitors going into his room to just family in order to keep his blood pressure down and brain pressure down. Mom is having a very hard time tonight, she has been so strong but this waiting is taking its toll.
While sitting in the waiting room it has given us time to do lots of thinking and reflect on our own lives, I have learned to really give thanks and show gratitude for everything even the smallest things, and patience is a lesson to all of us right now. I just am trying to hold tight to what we have been told" I never said it would be easy , I only said it would be worth it." I wanna thank everybody for there amazing support, prayers, fasting, laughs, memories and more. It means so much to my family.
Doctors Notes - Still a coma and unresponsive, blood pressure is down slightly and slight decrease in brain pressure, still no sign of brain activity.
