Progress

John has made "tremendous progress" in the past few days, says Dr. Link (neurologist). John has been responsive when engaging with family and friends, seeming to understand much of what is said to him, and responding at times such as with a smile or moving his head. We've seen less improvement in physical actions vs. cognition, but John is improving those as well. He has moved his hand up to near his collarbone, has tightened his hands to hold objects (crystals), chewed on his fingernail (bad habits die hard!), moved his legs but not his toes. Today when John sat in a hospital chair (that supported his body weight), he was able to hold his head up for a time, before growing tired and letting it drop to the side.
