Mary and I had an encouraging visit with Ian today. Each time that we talk with the nursing staff, they seemed more and more excited about Ian's progress. His nurse today said that he was wide awake when she came in in the morning, and she also said that he seems to be communicating with her at times by blinking once for "no" and twice for "yes."
We were also told that Ian was tracking fully with his eyes today- meaning he followed with his eyes not only to the right but to the left, something that he hasn't done before. His doctor was excited by how his eye is clearing up and also the sore on his back seems to be getting smaller.
We've heard several different staff members say that Ian just seems to be more and more aware of what's going on. He now tends to stay awake all day, which is great.
One focus of prayer is for Ian's medical assistance. Right now there is some question of whether medical insurance will cover his stay up until now. This doesn't mean that Ian will have to leave Children's- but the days that he has already been there may not be paid for by medical assistance. Please pray that medical assistance would decide to pay for his stay so far.
To repeat what David wrote a few weeks ago, Jesus is on the move. I'm still praying about that Christmas gift.
Thank you for your prayers.
