We went home today! Kevin is doing fantastic. He only took one dose of Tylenol since we got home early this afternoon and he is handling the pain extremely well. I only hope it stays this way (or even gets better). No pain would be soooooo good!
And it really is unbelievable, but Kevin has probably said about 50 new words today. Clearly. A lot of them he just repeated after I said something, some of them we had to practice and a couple of them he just said on his own.
For those of you that have been reading all along, you may remember me mentioning back when he got the plate the first time that it's been known to happen where someone that can't talk at all will be able to once their plate is put in.
Kevin didn't just wake up and be able to speak fluently, but WOW! What a difference! He is able to say more words, he is also able to speak them correctly (for the most part), and even better - his thinking is clearer. You can see it in his eyes and how he reacts during activities and discussions.
Now we just need to have no infections and no 'real' fluid buildup. When checking his head tonight I noticed the does have a small amount of buildup, but I was told that can be normal for a few days. We just need it to go away over the weekend and all will be well.
First 2 from the Nov kit!
