Spike slept through the night for the first time. (Technically, he woke up for an new IV line and evaluations but that pretty much counts for sleeping through the night in a hospital.) He also ate a lot for breakfast, which is a great sign of recovery.
The surgical residents indicated this morning that he will likely be discharged Monday. We hope that will happen very early so that we can make it all the way back to North Carolina by Monday evening.
Occasionally, Spike now laughs at videos and games. That's a great sound to hear again! He also smiles but it is a crooked little smile due to his continued left side weakness. That should resolve itself soon as his brain rewires itself to coordinate the left side.
Good progress every day.
