Wednesday's Update

Rob has had a wonderful day! Today he did what we all have been anxious for him to do - he opened his eyes! I'm told he's done it several times throughout the day. At one point he was very tense and his fists were clenched. My dad held his hand and told him to unclench his fist - and he did. He was also told to wiggle his toes and could do it. We are elated!!

He was also moved out of the rotation bed today because his lungs have improved that much. He's been trying to breathe in between the ventilator's "breaths" (sorry, can you tell I don't have my medical terminology down yet?), so they were talking about turning the oxygen down some tonight to see how he does.

Thanks again for all you've done for my family.
