The nurse last night reported this to me: Yesterday morning, Ian's doctor asked him to scratch his chin and he did. Then she asked him to touch his belly and he said "uh uh," (meaning "no"- i'm not actually sure how to spell that sound:)
Ian also squeezes his eyes shut when they come toward him with the eye drops and another nurse told me that when he was getting a shower they asked him to raise his arms but he blatantly held them tight next to his body. We'll take stubornness if that means he is hearing us.
"Are you in the lowest depths of sorrow? Does corruption rise within your spirit, and grace seem like a poor spark trampled underfoot? Does your faith almost fail you? Fear not, for it is neither your graces nor feelings on which you are to live: you must live simply by faith in Christ."
Still praying that God completely restores Ian's mind and personality. We'd like him back soon.
