Lighter

Last night's nurse described John as lighter. When I was there, his eyes were moving quite a bit more than the night before and he seemed to look toward me a couple times. The nurse said that when she would leave him alone at night for a while, he'd close his eyes, but then open then again when someone entered the room. At times his hands respond to stimuli but there was less change with that so far.

When Rachel went by later this morning, she had some significant responses from him. When she called his name from either side of the bed, he would look toward her. When she asked him if he knew she was there, he nodded his head yes. When she asked him if he was coming back to us, he again nodded his head yes.
