This morning is a crucial time for Shannon and we can use all the faith and prayers available. Shannon's pressures rose during the night and at 6am she had an additional CT Scan. The results of the scan seemed to be at odds with the numbers being presented, according to the attending physician. The plan had been to take her off of the sedation medication today and see how she would respond. The doctor felt like the best thing to do would be to get her off of the Pentabarb (sedative) and the paralytic drugs so that they could see what her body would do. So at 7:15am they took her off of the medications and are in the process of letting the levels of those medications decrease so that they can see how she responds physically. They are looking for responses in how her pupils react, motor functions, and anything else that will give them an idea of how her brain is functioning. Now it is up to Shannon!!
