Forrest had a PEG feeding tube put into his stomach today, allowing the nasal gastric tube to be removed from his nose... he looks relatively more comfortable. He's still minimally responsive and is having neurological "storming" episodes.
Mom, Dad, and I put together a case presentation of MRI & CT scan clips, diagnostic reports, and other information on Forrest's case. Dad went up to Johns Hopkins and presented it to Neurology docs there. They've accepted him and we may be moving him by air transport (medical jet) as early as this Thursday, depending on bed availability. We are looking forward to being closer to Home and our VA friends, but we will also miss the great and generous friends (as well as wonderful doctors nurses & therapists) in Atlanta. Hopefully he will be strong enough to someday make it back to rehab at Shepherd Center, where he made such great progress before. We will let you know when he's ready for brief visits from friends.
