Elana is still doing OK. Her temperature came down early in the day but then went back up a little bit in the afternoon. Still the doctor is pleased thus far with how she is doing. Tomorrow morning they will stop the Ketamine. However, the doctor may decide to keep her in the Coma for an extra day just to help soften the landing from the Ketamine. The doctor will make that decision in the morning as he stops the Ketamine. My guess is that he will keep her down for the extra day because waking up from Ketamine is very hard transition on the mind. However some patients react more to it than others and don't get the horrible hallucinations and terrors that are usual and customary with Ketamine. We will have to wait and see tomorrow. The reality is that this ride will start to get very bumpy the moment she wakes up whether it is tomorrow or Saturday.
I know what it is like to be by Elana's side for days at a time but even with that experience I don't think there is any preparation for what lies ahead. I know I can handle whatever comes my way but it would be easier if I knew exactly what to expect.
I am definitely looking forward to her waking up and having to take care of her. That will mean we are in the recovery mode and that much closer to her feeling better.
At the same time, I am sick of CNN and crappy food. You can only watch so much Wolf Blitzer. "So Senator, just so there is no confusion for our worldwide television audience, you are going on the record as saying Tuesday is before Wednesday AND the day after Monday as well."
One last thing, I attached a picture of Jesse eating Pizza. Jacob Ratzan and Evan Goldman, my best friends since high school, came over tonight picked Jesse up and took him out for a Guys Night Out. You guys are the best.
