Karson has finished his antibotic which really seemed to helped with making him feel so much better. He received botox in his cheeks to help ease the grinding of his teeth. Dr. Elovic also put some botox on the right side of his neck because Karson has a tendency to turn his head to the left and the right side of his neck gets really tight. Dr. Elovic moved his baclofen pump up to 180 which is still in the low range. I asked the doctor to give us an estimate on how long before he thinks that Karson will be able to handle physical therapy at the U of U and he said in about two months so that is what we are shooting for. He continues to be more and more alert everyday and is saying a lot more words. I can see a lot more movement due to the baclofen and the brain healing. Karson is such a strong person who is up for this fight. I am so impressed that he continues to be such a fighter. Thanks for all the support and love that you always send our family. Everyone always tells me that they put Karson on the prayer roll when they go to the temple. I can't believe how truly blessed we are to have such a wonderful family and friends as you all are.
