Fear not, for I am with you;
be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Ian had another good day on Saturday. When he was awake he was pretty alert and he also took some nice naps. We had a little campfire last night that hopefully he enjoyed and we watched some familiar movies and shows with him.
Yesterday morning I was having my devotion time with him and was reading through Genesis. I got to the part about the Tower of Babel and wasn't sure how to pronounce Babel. So I asked Ian to blink at the right pronunciation. Three times he blinked to the one way I was saying it. I asked Steve how it was pronounced and Ian was blinking to the right one. Not only does that show me that he remembers somewhat obscure things like how to pronounce words, but it shows me that he knew I was reading God's word to him. I hope it is bringing him comfort and peace.
We've seen Ian more alert this week than we ever have at the hospital. Please keep praying with us that this continues and God brings him back to us fully.
