Finally! Something good to report.
Yesterday, Scottie opened his eyes for a brief time. He was able to follow his daughter across the room with his eyes, and squeeze his ex wife's hand.
I'm trying hard not to be too excited about this, but it's hard not to be. This is the first sign at all of responsiveness since the accident. That's 19 days.
I'm going to head that way in just a little while. The parking lot at the hospital re-opened yesterday, but fuel is still a major issue. I will top off my tank before I leave, and I should be able to make it most of the way back before needing to refuel.
While this is an encouraging development, we are by no means out of the water on this one.
Thank you all again. My meager ability with words is totally inadequate to express my thanks for the support I've received from the blogosphere.
I'll report back soon.
Meanwhile - Here are the boys Saturday in front of Gruene Hall, the oldest dance hall in Texas.
