8:34 AM [MrsCaptainD] UPDATE ON BIKER: from last night: Randy's temperature has returned to normal and his other bio values are fine. His lungs are not accumulating as much fluids as they used to. Just by looking at his head, it's obvious his brain swelling has gone down tremendously and his head is really dented in where they took out part of his skull. According to his doctor, he has a lot of brain liquid (CSF, Cerebral Spine Fluid) in his head, which is not bad per se. A healthy brain normally "floats" in CSF and it acts as a natural cushion. His right chest has a dent where the ribs broke and according to a doctor this will most likely stay that way, since the broken bones have set. His head stitches have not yet been removed, but we are trying to figure out what's going on with that. The nurses sat him up in a chair and he is wearing his helmet. We are exposing him to a lot of different stimuli: -Smells (Different smells, for example lavender) -Music/Speech -Touch -Visual His eyes are partially open most of the time and I would subjectively say his eye movement is not as erratic anymore, but more controlled. No other changes I could think of that would be visible from the outside, but I know his body/brain is slowly repairing and restoring him from the inside. It's all about patience! Please keep the prayers and positive thoughts coming.
