Good News and More Waiting
Finally, some good news! Dean was able to have his brain scanned on Friday. The good news is that there is blood flow in his brain and that he is not brain dead. This is fantastic!! It means that something is still working, part of him is still alive. So now we wait to see what happens next. At this point there is no way to know what damage has been done. He could wake up as his normal self. He could wake up completely altered and different than he was before. He could wake up to low functioning and complete dependence. He might not wake up at all. We just don't know yet, and we won't know for a while. So, in the meantime, we'll keep waiting and praying, and hoping for the best.
