He's had the medicine for 2 days now & the neurologist said that it could start working anytime. Originally, we thought we had to wait until the 5 days of dosing were given. So, we're cautiously hopeful.
I noticed on Wed, before I left, that he looked MUCH better, was breathing MUCH more easily. The nurse said that Matt was 'setting the rate' for the respirator, which is good, means that his body is breathing some on it's own - just needs the respirator for help.
It could still be a week...or so.....Kate just called..Matt's eye's opened a little little bit.....they're suctioning his lungs right now so Kate went outside the room for a minute. more later.
