I thought I would share some excerpts from a couple other people who visited Ian.

From Jenn Grover:

I was visiting Ian last night [Tuesday night] and witnessed
a lot of activity and it was obvious that he was making attempts
to complete all of the commands the nurse and I were giving him.

When asked to move the big toe on his left foot, he complied. 
There was also a lot of blinking of his eyes.
When I said goodbye to him he moved his head.
Whether that was voluntary or involuntary, it is difficult to
know. I do strongly believe that he was aware of me and the
staff to a much greater degree than he was last Thursday.
 
From Randy Wolfe:
I spent nearly an hour with Ian this evening [Wednesday],
and I was surprised that he responded to me at all. I asked
him to move his hand then his foot and he did. What really
got me though was he turned his head to the right a little
when I was talking to him, then I went to his left side and
he turned it in that direction while I was talking to him.
The more I spoke the more he turned towards my voice.

his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness."

Praise God! What encouraging news.

I check Ian’s blog several times a day to see if there is any “new” news. Thank you for faithfully updating this and for the faith you are exhibiting during this time. God is blessed by your trust in Him and His will – and you are such an example to me. This is a wonderful way for folks who are praying to know what is going on without feeling like we are being a burden on anyone to keep us informed.

I, along with many others that you aren’t even aware of (some of whom you don’t even know but whose lives Ian has touched) continue to hope and pray for healing. God is good all the time, all the time God is good.

Love,
