...Neil is looking at us! He can open his left eye quite a bit more, and his right eye a little. It looks like he’s trying to focus on our faces. And his eyes move! He will track a face or an object a little bit. You can tell it’s a lot of work for him, but we’re applauding his herculean efforts. I just get the feeling he wants very badly to interact. He has lately been moving his right leg and lifting his right arm to pick at the monitors taped to his chest. He uses the left side too, but not as much.
We're just as pleased as we can be and so is his doctor. We're hoping this is just the beginning of many more little signs of our awakening giant!
