Wednesday at 10 a.m. is Hospital Bingo time here at Primary Children's. This cool motorcycle blanket is Ben's Bingo prize. Apparently, you win a prize if you participate, sleep, or watch re-runs of BYU football games during Hospital Bingo. It is a very nice, soft, two layer blanket. It came with a tag indicating that it was put together by a boy scout troop for an eagle project. I think that is awesome that some teenage boys are putting together blankets for hospital patients! I mean who better would know what kind of blanket a 12 year old boy would like than some boy scouts! Good job Troop 154 and Mr. Eagle Scout whose name I won't mention on the internet!
Other than that, Ben has been slowly improving today. He has not thrown up, but has mainly been sticking to a liquid diet. He still has a lot of head pain, and we are working to get that under control. We have also moved out of the PICU, into a more comfortable room.
The Dr's are most excited that he has had two seizures today. His surgeon told him, "Good Job!" This means that we are getting the test results that we need, and might be getting enough results soon enough to do the second surgery earlier. Don't quote me on that, though. So hurray for seizures?!?!
