Yesterday evening Elias became more playful although weak. It is another positive sign. He is back to his home routine with the ventilator on only while he sleeps. He is still requiring oxygen around the clock. This morning he has tried to sit up a few times but doesn't last long - at least he is trying. We have asked for a PT consult which the doctors agreed would be a positive. They want to get an MRI but it doesn't look like today is going to happen. The EEG is also off for now but may be put back on tonight. Given the positives Elias was moved off the PICU onto a less acute floor. One step closer to home. That is all we know at the moment. Thank you all again for the tremendous amount of prayer and support you all have shown. It has been a terrific help during these very stressful days.
