as a miracle, but what is happening with BIL is no less than amazing. I mentioned that he started to return a bit last night, well, today has been remarkable. His SU called this morning to tell us that his progress continued and that he was talking a bit more. And was able to respond better, to respond to specific commands. As in, the doctor told him to give him the thumbs up if he understood and he did. Then he told him to open his mouth and stick out his tongue, and he did. He asked where he was and how long he had been there. He allowed his SU to feed him ice and asked for more. No longer do the doctors and nurses classify him as non-responsive.
After lunch, SU, Pop and I dropped by to visit him. Amazing. Pop immediately noticed the difference from last Sunday, a week ago. His color has returned and the bloating is subsiding. He recognized each of us. He said “it’ll be awhile” in response to something we said. When Pop turned to leave and walk away, BIL sat up and called him back, motioning to him. When Pop returned, BIL squeezed his hand and told him he loved him. Amazing. Simply amazing.
There is still a long road ahead but his kidneys seem to be funtioning and his mind gets clearer by the hour. The pneumonia is cause for concern. The mass amount of drugs he has had to have pushed is a concern. But he is alert, alive and that fuels our hope. Amazing. Simply amazing.
