Tim had a good night last night with no major episodes. He doesn't like being turned onto his right side so the doctors and nurses made the complex medical decision to not turn him to his right for now. We sat in on morning rounds and they decided to start to wean him off some of his medication and slowly wean him off the vent. They were also able to successfully get his heart back into a normal rhythm using his pacemaker to over pace his heart which then broke the bad rhythm and he's stable now at about 120 beats per minute. We'll be spending a good chunk of the day with him today but don't expect to see him very active for a few days still.
