I've been accused of being overly enthusiastic, or maybe just too positive in my postings about Neil's progress by those who have seen him. Perhaps I have been, because we celebrate the smallest of achievements. Just so you know, Neil is still in what is called a minimally conscious state. He shows no facial expression or emotion. He may, or may not look at you. His movements are still quite spastic and he doesn't respond to promptings consistently. His doctor expects he will be more awake by the end of a week but, as I've been saying all along, this is going to take a long time. Still hoping for continued progress, but we see every step forward as a gift from God.
