Victor's condition remains basically the same. Although his ICP is below 20 now, he is still in critical condition. The goal was to keep his ICP below 20 durning the first 72-96 hours after the accident. The severity of the injuries made this very difficult. There were extended periods of time when the readings exceeded 40 which is way too high.
The next step seems simple enough: wait for the swelling to subside to a point where he can be taken off the medications. This time frame is unknown, however the doctors seem to agree that it will be at least weeks before we see this. Victor's body needs time to heal and we need to allow him that time.
Generally speaking, he is much better. Most of the swelling has subsided. He has a low temperature fever, which is not unusual for his condition. We cautiously move forward with renewed hope. We send our love and appreciation for all the prayers and support.
We know that God loves Victor and that he has a plan for him. God has placed a blessing upon him and continues to bless him every minute. We reverently accept his blessings and thank him dearly for another day with Victor.
We love you Victor. Keep fighting.
