Tomorrow Ian goes in for a skin graft on his knee. In a few days after he’s recuperated from that surgery, we’re expecting to have to make the decision about a transitional facility, unless there are more things that need to be done to him in the hospital. When he leaves the hospital, we’ll be pushing for an aggressive approach to physical therapy; we really don’t want him just to be in a nursing home. We want him to recover from this either by a miracle or by God’s provision of various therapies. It may mean he can’t stay locally, but we’d prefer to have him where they can really work with him.
He appears to be responding to familiar people! Larissa and David (Ian’s best friend since the day they were born) noticed him responding to very simple commands like, “move your arms,” “move your legs,” etc. Pray that he keeps it up. Pray that these small steps would be much more obvious. Pray that he would respond to commands from less familiar voices and even from the medical staff. Pray, most of all, that he would wake up.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for your prayers….
