    "They took her off sedation this morning but she's still not awake. also did a ct scan this afternoon. The clot looks smaller. Her intracranial pressure was generally low today. She still has some problems but today is most encouraging."

    I spent some time pouring through the reports. Her condition has improved quite a bit today. The clot is smaller in volume since the last CT scan two days ago. I estimate the reduction to be about 15% in volume.

    She still has some other problems that tell us that her brain still needs some more time to recover. They may have to re-sedate her if her intracranial pressure goes up again. But we are hoping that she continues to do as well as she did earlier today.

    Thanks, guys!!! :beer:

    It has been a rollercoaster ride these few days. While she remained relatively stable since my last updates, there have been quite a few scares along the way. It has been a really harrowing and stressful week.

    Today's Day 7 since her "accident". They took her off sedation twice so far but she wasn't prepared. They have had to put her back on sedation soon after.

    Just yesterday, they had to increase her sedation by 50% because her intracranial pressure was shooting up. That brought it down enough for them to try removing the sedation earlier today. However, after about 4-5 hours, they had to put her back on after they did a CT scan and found that she still had some cerebral oedema (swelling of the brain).

    As you can see, it's been up and down... very stressful since one minute, you are optimistic and then the next minute, you don't feel quite so optimistic.

    I think it's going to be a really long haul, no matter how good the ICU team is. The clot will take about 6 weeks to resolve by itself but in the meantime, they have to keep her stable and hope that they can get her off sedation soon, before other problems like pneumonia, deep vein thrombosis, etc. sets in.

    The good news is that she has remained relatively stable... and there has been no rebleed. The latest CT scan showed some cerebral oedema and according to the report, the clot hasn't shrunk much since the last CT scan. My own measurements showed a small reduction in size but maybe I'm just too optimistic.

    Did Jenny wake up?

    No, she is still sedated. She's unlikely to wake for a few more days, but we are hoping she wakes soon.
