We just got back from the hospital visiting Damon and Corrine. Damon is doing surprisingly well. It is obviously still a struggle and an emotional roller coaster. But given all that has been thrown at him he really is doing surprisingly well.
The doctors said today that all of her internal organs are doing really well. She has not had any blood in any of her drainage tubes since things have calmed down from surgery yesterday. They believe that her spleen was the bleeding problem. With that gone she is doing much better. The swelling in her hands and face has gone down even more since last night. In fact they had to put a smaller neck brace on her because she has shrunk so much. Things are starting to look up.
The doctors have said that Corrine is not getting enough sleep due to the number of visits she is receiving. Every time someone walks into her room and says her name loudly or touches her hand it startles her awake and it takes her time to calm down to go back to sleep. They have strongly suggested that we keep the amount of people visiting to a minimum. We know that you all love Corrine so much and want to see her and let her know that you are there for her, but we would like to follow the suggestions of the doctors and ask that at this time visiting from friends stop. We are sorry that it has to be this way, but we need to think of what is best for Corrine at this time. When she is up for visitors we will definitely let you know. If you would still like to come visit Damon you are more then welcome to visit him in the waiting room. I know he would appreciate the love and support from the visits.
