Sorry it's so late...I had surprise visitors. Curtis and Jean Graf stopped by to see Rick and then they took me to eat supper...and it was good! Just got back to the hospital and Rick is still awake! Of course, since we are in Dallas, EVERYONE is watching the football game tonight. Rick was really trying to talk to Jean and Curtis, and today on the phone with Riley he said "hey Riley" loud enough that she could hear him! It was a loud whisper, and we've been practicing on it all week. Then when she said "bye, I love you", he mouthed the words, "I love you, too". So, I think maybe since she got to hear him talk, it made not seeing him this weekend not so bad.
Can't wait for Dr. Carlile to see Rick in the morning. Since she's been gone all week, I think she is going to be pleasantly surprised by what she sees.
I'll let y'all know tomorrow when we're leaving Baylor. I know that God will put us in the right place. Thanks again for all your prayers and support.
