Boy, have these been some trying times...but we're still fighting! Thank you Lord for continuing to send me strength to get through every day. Rick did really good for Vanessa again today. He was able to pick out a red cone from about 7 cones, and was able to pick out a coffee cup out of a line up of a flashlight, coffee cup, and pill bottle. His reward for doing so well was more ice...which he loves. He still has the speaking valve in and is controlling his swallowing very well, but has not been able to make a verbal response yet.
He will have to go back to United Regional tomorrow morning at 10:00 for an ultrasound of his legs to ensure there are no blood clots. And we hope to be moving to Baylor on Monday morning.
The kids are excited about Daddy going to Baylor...they both know how important it is for him to go. At the same time they realize they won't get to see us as often, and that will be hard. But, once again, we have to keep our eye on the prize...God never said it would be easy, and I know he has brought us this far, and will not leave us now.
God Bless You All,
