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.
