We met with Dr. Elovic at the U of U yesterday and had an amazing appointment. With our insurance, we only have one shot with therapy. So we are getting him ready for therapy with changing up his medications and getting the baclofen pump trial done so hopefully that will ease the pain Karson has been having and make him not so tight in his arms and legs. He was very hopeful that if the baclofen pump doesn't work then, we can try surgery to strip the joints so that Karson will have motion in his knees, ankles, wrists, elbows and fingers. I know that this is causing Karson a lot of pain and suffering right now. I know that his why he cries out so much because he is more aware of what is happening around him and he can't move like he wants to. With all the changes we are making, I pray that Karson will get better and better. We have another appointment in a month at the U of U to see what changes have been made and then we will go from there. I am impressed with the doctors knowledge on brain injuries and feel like we have finally found someone that really is taking care of Karson's needs. If any of you have loved ones that have a brain injury, don't mess around with all the other specialists like we have done, got right to the U of U. I feel confident that you will be taken care of, not just thrown drugs and negative advice. Thanks for all your prayers, your sweet comments, your emails and all the cards, letters and treats. Our family is truly blessed to have all of you in our lives.
