Got started on the new meds today...I can't see much difference yet. He had another productive day. New trick today was sticking out his tongue...6 times. The sweetest moment came when Riley was telling him bye and she leaned over to kiss him and he tried to pucker his lips to kiss her back...we were laughing and trying not to cry. His nephew Tanner came today. Rick was holding a ball and I said, "Rick, Tanner's here you better shake his hand", and he dropped the ball in his hand and stretched his fingers out.
Yesterday after I already posted the blog, Dane Mount came by and was talking to Rick. He said, "Rick, I know you're going to be alright." and Rick said...not audibly of course, but mouthed the words, "I'll be alright". It was so wonderful. When he is truly alert and awake he can do amazing things.
The doctor said that Baylor said they will be here in a week to evaluate him...of course we've heard that before, and I'll believe it when I see it...but it does confirm the fact that they think he is really close to being accepted.
Cade is headed to Arlington with Devin and Sandra to a Rangers game, and Riley is in Seymour with my sister. Every time I see them I just can't believe how much they've changed in just a few days...can you imagine how Rick will feel the first time he sees them?
Keep the faith and keep believing!
