Ian must have a song stuck in his head because he keeps tapping his left foot. We've noticed over the last few days that he is moving his left leg a lot more. His nurse told me today that it seems like deliberate movement, not a shake or a twitch. She asked if Ian is the type of person that taps a lot, and he is, so maybe this is just more of him coming out.

Ian also seems to be moving his left arm a lot too. He's been reaching for his chin and neck and seems to be scratching. Maybe his throat hurts, maybe his trach site itches, or maybe he's just rediscovering his body. All I know is that any new movement is really exciting.

His mouth is still really sore. Today his speech therapist said, "I just want these sores to go away." Please pray that God would take away Ian's sores, take away any discomfort they are causing, and completely restore his mouth.

This scripture is underlined in Ian's Bible:
"I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord, be strong, and let your heart take courage, wait for the Lord."

Believing in that goodness....

Thank you for the Scripture quote, howmeaningful it is now! However, God knew that you would be reading it in Ian's bible on this very day, sitting by Ian's side, waiting for him to awaken totally. That same God is with you, Ian, and all of us who know him each and every moment of our days. Gigi
