The Last Week

A week ago today Joel got a bump on the head … well ok … a severe brain injury. He had emergency surgery to remove the blood clot etc. Afterwards he was straight to ICU where he stayed until being moved to HDU (High Dependency Unit) 2 days ago. He hasn’t woken properly yet. The first day there was no response from him but since then he has had periods where he half opens his eyes and obeys commands such as squeeze hand, poke out tongue, wriggle toes. Doctors have said to expect small improvements, not big jumps.
