Last night, Ryan had a tough time getting comfortable in bed.
Mom and the nurses were excited about this, but also very worried that he would pull himself out of the bed in the middle of the night. This is a scary idea considering the fact that he is still in a coma. The nurses are very against restraints because not only does it restrict his movements, but it could also make him angry. So, they suggested that Mom sleep with him in the bed, and that is exactly what she did. She will not admit it, but I know that she truly enjoyed being able to lie close to her baby for the night - even it was for his own protection. Another positive note, Mom was able to sleep in a real bed (well..hospital bed) for the first time in 42 nights!!
Everyday is a step towards recovery, and everyday we are thankful and praise our miraculous Lord!
