25 OCT 09 Happy Bday! Jasper is 11 months old today!!!!

WOW what a great sight to see little Jasper waking up!!!! So exciting and overwhelming. Still taking baby steps though, not sure what tomorrow will bring... But it was a GOOD day today! They lifted the paryletic thinking that when they checked his blood gasses that they might have to put him back on, but they still are off as of 9pm Sat night! They were lifted about 11:am. He is still heavily sedated, morphine, versed (used to produce sleepiness or drowsiness and to relieve anxiety before surgery or certain procedures. It is also used to produce loss of consciousness before and during surgery) etc etc so he is not in any pain or in a state of fear or feeling sad at all

It was great to see him wiggle about, and open his eyes. We miss our little guy terrible and getting a glimpse of his old self was truly spectacular. We are by no means out of the woods, still a long recovery and not even sure this repair will be it. It was a good day though and for now we will take that!
