Ava opens her eyes

Ava continued to do well through the night. The Neurosurgeons removed the intracranial pressure monitor this afternoon, and discontinued the EEG (electroencephalogram) monitoring. They are very pleased with her progress.She will have an MRI done this evening to look at her brain tissue. The plans to wean her from the ventilator may be slightly delayed as she has a small pneumonia now.The greatest news of the day... Manny told me that she tried to open her eyes this morning!! Amazing! Given that she is becoming more arousable, she will need to be sedated to keep her from fighting against the ventilator.Keep your prayers coming, they have been working.fw.
