Kyle had a procedure done today called a Myleogram, which uses a special dye to X-Ray to determine the swelling in the spinal canal. We should know the results in the morning.

He had an okay day, breathing over the ventilator and his meds have been decreased, which means he is experiencin
g some pain. He is able to indicate to us and answer by nodding his head, so he can indicate if he's in pain. His medical team continues to take wonderful care of him and seem to be happy with some of the progress today.

He's very frustated about the breathing tube in his mouth and constantly tries to move his hands up to his mouth to yank them out! Family and friends watch him all through the day to make sure he doesn't pull them out and he's not a happy camper that we make him stop! It's nice to see him respond and we all look forward to hearing him speak to us very soon!

We'll meet with the medical team first thing in the morning to go over the next options and his progress so far, so we'll be sure and give an update tomorrow!

Everyone in Kyle's family so appreciate all the kind words, thoughts and prayers. We firmly believe that every bit helps his recovery and hope that you continue to think about him and pray for him!
