Since getting the lumbar drain last week, Bryan has been more alert and responsive as the days go by. They have the fluid draining really slow so his responses had been pretty minimal...until yesterday. Yesterday we got the most response from Bry to date. He lifted his left leg slightly when asked, he raised his left arm everytime we asked if we could hold his hand, and the best part? Bonnie asked Bryan if she could have a kiss and every time she asked him, he puckered his lips. The final time when she was leaving, Bonnie asked again for a kiss. Bry turned his head towards her, puckered his lips for the kiss, then turned his head back. The nurse was shocked and excited to see that!
**side note from Bonnie: I have never, in my 32 years, thought I would kiss my brother on the lips, let alone that many times. But cant wait to do it again!
**side note from Erin: I couldn't be there to see it, but I never thought I would be jealous of my brother kissing my sister on the lips...regardless, I am chapsticking up for my next visit.
While we are writing this update we are driving to LA so we can't include our song until we get there. The song: Don't Stop Believing. The reason: not only is it Bryan's karaoke song of choice, but we want to say that we have never stopped believing, wont ever stop believing, and please...don't stop believing in Bryan!
