We been with Nolan for about 2 hours. He is heavily medicated and cries on and off. It is very pitiful and hard to hear since he rarely cries anyway. Walking in and seeing him covered in tubes takes your breath away, but when you look around the PICU and see things much worse......

He has lots of tubes and drains that will be in place for several days.


The neurosurgeon came by and said he and the cranial facial plastic surgeon were very happy with the results.


We can expect his eyes to swell shut for a couple of days.


The dressing on his head maybe be removed tomorrow.


That is all I know for now.


here is Nolan and his monkey (who has his own nametag)
