Today has been a very good day. No "morning call" for starters, so that was a BIG relief. Since the craniectomy and removal of part of the new clot, she has been stable so far and her intracranial pressure is generally good. That's expected, of course, since part of the cranium has been removed. The good news is, today, her diabetes insipidus (which is a sign of brain trauma) has resolved itself. Her infection also seemed to be under control. She is still under sedation but they plan to reduce the sedation tomorrow. She actually improved enough for them to send her for another CT scan earlier this afternoon. It showed that both the original and the new clots are now smaller in size, although the brain is still swollen. Considering her dire circumstances just yesterday, these are very promising signs. I'm keeping my fingers crossed real tightly but I do feel that we have turned a crucial corner here. Hopefully, it's smooth sailing from here onwards!
