A big update on baby bear---

As to Bears physical condition, the doctors are saying he is fighting off the disease incredibly fast and will probably come home this weekend. He was put on almost 50 pounds due to the interaction of the drugs he was subjected to.  He has a few nerve damage related ticks, most notably his legs now have a restless quality about them. He is strong and shows no notable signs  of musculature damage.

Unfortunately the above was most of the good news we received. On to his mental condition. He still retains the underlying mental aptitude for subconscious activities, but is showing signs of disassociation. He had trouble identifying simple objects. He has a spotty grasp off his past, and jumps around in thought to different times in his memory. The doctor said this seems to be a copping issue of the mind to fill in the blanks. The blanks being spots in his memory that he either can?HuhHuh?t understand,  or were directly affected and potentially wiped out by the disease. The doctors say he is functioning at an average to above average level of intelligence, but  he has possibly lost quite a bit of his memories. They went on to say that due to the way the disease attacked and infected his brain this damage is scattered.

We sent the findings to the specialist from Boston , and contacted him directly. He is under the belief that Bear has three overall options. His brain could relearn and fill in the lost holes and function the same as he did before. That he could close the holes and function at a decent level with barely noticeable problems. That his mind could just find all the information that isn?HuhHuh?t congruent and understandable and dump it all in an attempt to retain balance. He went on to say the true danger is his emotional wellbeing, in that he may be potentially quite dangerous. This is due to his past history, training, and overall size and strength, as the emotional side of mental wellness is often overlooked. His inability to understand, or figure out what he once could may introduce a volatile state. It was his belief that because of Bear?HuhHuh?s intelligence level and will to stay, and heel himself that we should not expect the worse outcome. He just told us it to be thorough.

As it stands right now Bear will be coming home midday Saturday. The doctors have started weaning his antibiotic levels down to a point that can replaced with a dosage in pill form. They have started to re-introduce his normal medications so that any reaction will hopefully occur before his departure. The main reason that the doctors have gone along with the new time table is that his wife (a nurse) will be administering the meds and keeping a close eye on his rehabilitation.

We hope that being home will help him mentally do what is needed so he can feel better. The specialist thinks that this will be the case, but warned about the potential for an episode. He mentioned that the antiseptic and  distant feel people get in hospitals tend to make certain problems stay hidden. He went on to say that even the episode could have a silver lining as it will immediately bring the problems to the surface, where the can be addressed.

Bear is home and currently asleep in his den. He ate some real food took some medication to tire him out and went to sleep in a slightly more comfortable bed. He seems apprehensive of the things around him, and we have watched him stare at fairly normal things for long periods. He said it all feels strange a mix of normal things, and things that seem out of place like d????j?Huh vu. If he is feeling up to it I?HuhHuh?ll ask him to pop by tomorrow.

Sounds like his brain is in shock. i bet he will come out of it in a short time. My cousin fell and smacked he head real bad one time and it fucked her thinking up for months but came back. And she is not anything like the bear seems to be.

Hello all ! I'm back , but moving a little slow for right now. Thanks for the sentiments , and Karmic wishes. It's nice to know that beyond the fools that the metal nation still operates like a close family. Thanks to everyone that helped Itchy out during this time, as she can be an uncontrolled ball of emotions.  

Please don't get offended if I don't recall some of you or any conversations we have had. It's nothing personal just my thoughts are hit or miss right now. I really can't spend long times at the computer, due to the fact that I'm getting unfavorably intense migraines quite often. The print size and brightness of the screen, intensify my current inability to focus on things for a prolonged period. The interactions of the myriad of medications I'm on also don't bode well for any real activity. The oddest being the drug I take for nausea (which is coming from other interactions) makes me oddly narcoleptic. I can be in mid-conversation and just nod off for a short cat nap, reminiscent of my gramps from when I was a little kid.

::horns high salute :: A kodiak sized thanks to all , and I hope the karma shone me and my family over this adversity is repaid back. ::horns high salute::
