Quick update...Kyle had a good physical therapy and occupational therapy session today. He is a little more alert and doing pretty well breathing over the ventilator this morning. He did have a CT scan and X-rays today, so he's wiped out now and the vent is helping him to breathe. CT Scan shows his spine is still wonderfully straight and X-rays revealed some filling up of fluid in his left lung...they've hopefully corrected that with a bronchoscopy today.

His wonderful trauma doctor that admitted him just after the accident has returned from vacation and we're thrilled. We have ruled out the Shepherd Center in Atlanta, so Dr. Roberts is asking for 24 hours to assess Kyle to see if they can wean him off the ventilator and then we send him to the National Rehabilitation Hospital in Washington, DC. If they feel they cannot wean him off the vent in 48 hours, we will move him to another specialty facility downtown then move him to NRH.

He's resting quietly now and getting some much needed rest....More later.....
