Here’s the latest update about Dad who continues to lie in the hospital, still he hasn’t regained consciousness. Lesli was visiting last night and was talking to him telling him stuff. He had a couple of movements and such then as she was talking his eyebrows raise like they would if he were surprised at what he was hearing. Or perhaps, like a person would do to say ‘hi’ or acknowledge you were there if they couldn’t talk or something. His movements appeared to be in response to what was going on around him.
It was fun for me to hear the response of Lisa as she was being told. She was making one of those women noises kind of like someone was doing something tremendous and unexpected. Maybe one of the few good things of being in a coma is to have all expectations brought down to ground level so the next thing you do is like the greatest thing ever. That’s pretty much how it is for Dad right at the moment. No expectations and a lot of hope as everyone waits and prays for his healing.
He is being missed mightily by Mom and all of us. Unfortunately maybe many of us didn't realize what we had until it (or rather he) was gone for a time. Come back Dad whenever you are ready, we’ll be very excitedly appreciative whenever that occurs.
Maybe what we should be asking is what was Lesli telling him that got such a positive response? Next time you find yourself in a rut and need something to raise your eyebrows give my sister-in-law a call!
