Where's Larissa?

That was the question the speech therapist asked Ian. She asked him to turn and look at Larissa, and he did it. Once again, those are signs to us that he's really in there...somewhere.

He was in his "stander" and was moving all around with his hands and hips. The stander rubs on his knee a bit, so he has a sore there now.

Larissa mentioned in her previous post that he has something called MRSA in his right eye. I understand that we likely all have this (bacteria?) in our bodies, but we don't feel it's effects. Ian does, and it plays out like an infection that is very itchy for him. When his arm brace is off, he goes for his eye with his hand to scratch and rub his eye. That action could lead to the spread of this infection. If he rubs his eye, then the infection transfers to his hand and from there to other parts of his body. Please pray for his eye.

Thank you for your prayers.

I'm a member of Crossway Church of Lancaster. I've been praying for Ian daily. I feel like I know Ian even though I've never met him because of this blog. I just wanted to say thank you for sharing all that you have about Ian and yourselves. My heart goes out to you all as you wait for Ian to return. I hope and pray it will be soon. I'll be praying for that infection.

Oh how my heart goes out to Ian! I know he is locked inside his body and can not say the things he is thinking,but his spirit is free and can speak to his God!! He and no one of us are bound so as not to in our spirit talk to our God!!

Praying that his eye gets better and that he does not get it any where else!
Praying for all of you and may THE GOD OF OUR LORD JESUS GRANT YOU HIS PEACE THAT PASSES ALL UNDER STANDING BE WITH YOU ALL!

First, we know that Ian is aware that you are there. Most importantly, HE (Jesus) knows you're there and you honor him! You are a very important rung on the ladder that Ian is climbing out of his trials.
We are praying and holding the ladder for you and Ian all the time.
