Forrest Stone Allen has had a rough couple days. He's been very unresponsive and is arching his back and tremoring many hours during the day. We're doing our best to keep him calm by talking to him, rubbing his muscles, and adjusting medication with the doctors. We're unsure of the cause of these tremors he's been fighting the last couple of months since the cranioplasty. But the posturing(extreme arching of his back for long periods of time) is relatively new within the last couple of weeks. Occasionally, he's able to raise a finger or squeeze a hand in response to a question, so we're holding onto the small things. We're hoping the doctors here at Shepherd can help him and that the Doctors at UVA can help us find a long term solution.
Thank you for keeping him in your thoughts and prayers. We will continue to keep you updated.
