Journal entry by james witzman — 5/3/2017
Last night was a challenge as Jo experienced problems with low blood pressure. He tends to run low overall which can be an issue when heavily sedated. I've never prayed for 2 hours straight until last night, just asking God to hold him steady.
Rounds were just completed this morning and he has stabilized. His blood pressure has regulated, and his respiratory progress continues.
As expected the Drs are anxious to see an MRI. Of all my life experiences I've never been this terrified of anything. It will give us the best "guess" of what the future might look like. I'm not anxious to hear any of this.
Jo is making some "purposeful" movements, which basically means reacting when he is poked, moved, or evaluated.
He is still not awake, eyes closed resting. I can't bear to see my strong, energetic, powerful son on that bed. It literally breaks my heart.
Jojobinks mommy and daddy are here. We love you, keep fighting.
