Soooo there is a cat scan scheduled for tomorrow am to see what is going on in there, check on the fluid... it has hardly drained at all today but remember it was more swollen today than yesterday so I'm not sure if that is good or bad!  He has been in great spirits just hanging out today.... we watched "The Other Sister" again... the sister's hadn't seen it and he loves it for some reason.... seems to be the only movie that keeps his attention!  He can almost repeat it... word for word... my little RAIN MAN!  It's really been nice to have Dar and Sher here because they get ALL THE QUESTIONS for a change... Randi and I are getting a break, lol!  He is big into role playing these days.... "what did you say"... then what did he say.... why did he say that.... how did you react.... what words did you use?.... did you cry? ... were you happy?..... then back to... well what did he say... then what did you say.... OMGGGGGG!  I think he asked them 40 questions within a 15 minute period when they first got here and they have been answering questions ever since, lol.  Sherry is talking to him now and they are talking about Lou, my nephew... about how he either talks real loud or real low... this is the conversation:

How does he sound when he talks loud?
How does he sound when he talks low?
What does he say when he talks loud?
What does he say when he talks low?
How old is Lou's oldest friend?
How old is Gus' oldest friend?
What do they play when they play together?

All these questions within a 2 minute period!!!  As soon as she answers a question he is moved on to the next and ready with another question!

His brain wheels are spinning around constantly and he is always processing information.... soaking everything up like a sponge!  We told him about the movie Rain Man as he portrays several of the similar mannerisms and have been on the hunt to find it at Red Box only to have no luck!  Going to WalMart and Target tomorrow to find it.... we have had to you tube several of the parts of the movie and he wants to watch it so that's my mission tomorrow since we will still be here at the hospital!

Once I get the cat scan results back and speak with Dr. Vitarbo I will keep you posted as to what the next step is.  He just asked me to google ANALGESIC so I gotta run, lol!
