June 23 -Day 9

Not a lot has changed today, but there are a few some good signs: Dean has continued to exhibit some movement, and possibly even some movement in response to speech. In addition, his cranial pressure has remained at a reasonable level throughout the day and the doctors have twice lowered his dose of the drug they were using to help control brain swelling. The biggest concern regarding his brain right now is that we are still seeing no pupil response. This is our most urgent current prayer request.

At this point, we are just waiting and praying for the swelling to reduce enough to allow the doctors to perform the surgery on his facial bones that he needs.
