They just did rounds at the hospital, and they're going to keep James in the low-temp coma for another 24 hours, then bring him out of it slowly and see how he responds. Right now they're worried about his heart and some pulmonary edema--they think the left side of his heart was weakened by the trauma, and that maybe there's fluid in his lungs because of it. But over all, things are pretty calm. It's another 24 hours of sitting and waiting, and then we see how well our little James has pulled through.
I'm a nervous wreck. I keep thinking about how this could have happened at night, and we would have lost him. And then I start wondering if he's really "in there" or if he's gone already and we don't know it. The doctors say I should stay positive, but I'm full of fear.
Time to put our youngest to sleep, and then I can go in and spend some time with James (dh is there right now). And by the way, I could NOT have a better partner when it comes to this kind of thing. He's amazing.
Thank you for all the prayers and thoughts.
