No one ever wants to hear that they are being down graded, unless of course it means moving from an ICU room to a regular room on the heart floor.
Eric has a new room down the hall, new room #3718. It is the same building and same floor, just not in ICU. Hooray!!
He has been up walking around today and scared everyone cause he almost fell. One of his legs from the knee down went numb, they thought it was because he had not moved for such a long time. Just to be on the safe side they brought him back to the room, worked with him on some different stretches and coordination skills. Some of the stretches one side was doing well the other was not working right. So they took him down to do a CAT scan just make sure the brain was in good shape. The test came back good, so they believe it all comes down to not moving around lately.

We pray that his progress will continue and that he will be able to return back home soon. He still has lots of recovering to do but being home would be nice for everyone. No mention of doing that yet, but we will take a down grade in rooms for now.
Thanks for all the prayers! We see and feel the affects each and every day!!
All our love and thanks!
