I am glad I found this forum. Thanks for responding! Randy had a blood clot in his lower bowel and 1/2 the bowel was dead. They took it out and there was just enough to reattach. He seems to be healing well from the surgery.
Yesterday was an encouraging day. He opened his right eye, ever so slightly, just enough to let us know it was opening and closing. I am hopeful that this is a good sign of things to come. I understand it is going to take a long long time. WE all will learn patience and perseverance. When Randy cme down with GBS it happened in about 24 hours, from tingling in his feet and hands to being on the vent and totally paralyzed. Thanks for your good wishes and I will keep i touch. Prayers and hope to everyone. Thanks!
