Teeny Tiny Steps

So, more of the same. He sleeps for a while, then he opens his eyes...or at least his left eye. It takes some work, but eventually he locks on to a face and stares for a short time. If I hold up a sock monkey or a crinkly balloon he will sometimes look over at it. He likes to look at a busy poster some friends made if I hold it up in front of him, but I don't think he's quite figured out what he's looking at.

Teeny tiny steps forward and no steps back. It's still progress!

I think we will all take whatever teeny tiny steps he takes!!! I'm sure his effort exhausts him! Again, hooray!

neil will pull through this - these tiny steps are his way of telling us he's okay and he wants to wake up - it's just going to take time. i'm praying so hard for neil and family, stay strong, never lose hope, and believe in neil's strength. love you neil <3
