  OK well the results from his scans are back and Damien came thru with no 'Hairy' moments. He is back in 'ICU' still getting ventilated but very stable . He is still getting sedated but they will slowly ween him of that soon.His numbers are all ok and even though he has the tube in his mouth and tape all over his lips and several infusion lines he still managed to give his mum and dad some big smiles today.For a little boy that has been through so much pain and suffering i cant believe that he can still smile and be so happy. Its all those smiles and little laughs that we get from him that make all this a little easier for us to handle.
 I was speaking to my mum the other day when she was here visiting and she was talking about the way he can always smile even though he is in a lot of pain , well mum mentioned a song and told me some of the lyrics for it i thought i would add it here.
Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the sun come shining through for you
  Unfortunatly there was no vessels or anything putting pressure on his airways ,
And it is getting harder and harder to ventilate him.This where we have to decide  the next time he crashes whether to try and ventilate him. It could just end up being a vicious cycle which could end up just being the worst thing to do for him. They will try and get him off the ventilator over the next few days , He will then hopefully go back up to 7 west. They will keep him slightly sedated while he is up there because they need him to get all his strength back if there is any chance for him to come home . We have not been given a time frame because we just dont know how he is going to cope this time. As u can imagine after all his visits to 'ICU' each time its has been just that little harder for him to keep up his strength and avoid crashing again. I just hope to god that we will get a chance to take him home for a while i know he will be much happier there and it will give him a chance to play with his baby brother and his puppy who i know he is missing very much.
