Waking up is hard to do

While we are getting occasional flashes of recognition from John, none as clear as Rachel's experience with him a couple mornings ago. Dr. Walsh told my dad that he is pleased with the progress- that John can move more every day- but said that waking up may take days, may take months.

The doctors ran a MRI yesterday (John is now stable enough to tolerate it). We've not gotten the full results from the radiologist yet, but Dr. Walsh said there was "nothing terrible".

We are very excited about the Benefit for Big John on August 13th and look forward to celebrating John with the great community of people that love him. The details:
