Merry Christmas, Ian

I visited Ian yesterday, and it was cool to see him first stare at me and then avert his gaze to something else - in this case a colorful print on the wall of the conference room at Children's which he seemed to study. He's done that kind of thing before; his aunt noticed him following the fish in a fish tank recently. He seems to have much more control over his right eye, and it looks a lot better than it did before the medication. The medication they put in his eye makes it look goopy, though.

His wound on his back seems to have no infection left in it according to a nurse. However, they want to have a plastic surgeon look at it on Wednesday when he has his appointment with a knee surgeon. We don't have confirmation on the wound's status, but at least it's promising. If there's no infection, there's a greater chance he'll have the knee surgery.

We're going down tomorrow (Christmas) morning to celebrate with him. We're going to take some of our presents with us and open them there with him.

I miss Ian. We miss him. Come back to us soon, Ian. Merry Christmas.

Please pray...

Just to let you guys know that we are continually praying for you. We spent the afternoon at Grandma's house, and it wasn't at all the same without you. I love you all so so much. Keep up the strength. You are all so strong, and it encourages everyone. Merry Christmas all of you and Ian. Love

Merry Christmas, Ian, Murphys & Larissa. Thank you for the gifts that you have given to us all by your examples. We pray that you would receive 100 times in return. We pray for the gift of Ian's complete healing for you all, and sustaining grace until that gift is delivered. And we also remember God's gift of restoring Ian so far. That is amazing! All that in addition to the greatest gift - saving grace! May God continue to bless you all, and may Ian come home, completely restored, soon.

- John Q
