Mike is continuing to show some positive signs of improvement. Although intermittent signs, they're positive. Some of these signs include occasional squeezing of hands, or slight raising of arms or pulling in legs. Mike's doctors continue to be "cautiously optimistic" concerning his progress.

Late last night, Michelle and Mike's evening nurse, Theresa, were with Mike when he opened his eyes twice in response to touch sensations at his chest. The first time, the right eye was fairly wide open, with the left partially open. The second time, they both opened but not as much. We need to be absolutely clear that this should not be mistaken for "waking up," as we use those words. However, these were certainly facial responses to stimuli, and we understand that to be "higher" than, say, arm movement in response to sensation in the arm.

Mike had a CT scan yesterday which showed some improvement. He also had an EEG, but the results are not back yet.

Your prayers are effective, and we have (always) cause for praise. Keep praying for the positive responses we're seeing and for Mike's continued medical stability.

Know that Mike has been told repeatedly to be praying himself. We trust that he understands, and that he is joining us all in prayer. We know, as you do, that our Lord is hearing our call. And what a blessing it is to witness Michelle's faith and strength!

There just aren't words to tell you all everything we want to say, of our gratitude and the blessing you all have been to this entire family, and (we know) to each other. What is clear is that Mike's "family" truly includes all of you.

(Again, please remember that, if you don't see an update, it means Mike is "holding.")

    We sang this song at church on Sunday and it has been in my head since. I sing them as a prayer. May He continue to be all that you need to sustain you through today and the days ahead.

    I hunger and I thirst; Jesus my manna be;
    You living waters burst out of the rock for me.

    Thou bruised and broken Bread, my lifelong needs supply;
    As living souls are fed, oh, feed me or I die.

    Thou true life-giving Vine, let me Thy sweetness prove;
    Renew my life with thine, refresh my soul with love.

    Rough paths my feet have trod, since first their course began;
    Feed me, Thou bread of God, help me, Thou Son of Man.

    For still the desert lies my thirsting soul before;
    Oh living waters rise within me evermore.

    I hunger and I thirst; Jesus my manna be;
    You living waters burst out of the rock for me.

    Thank you for the updates and again for the privilege to witness God at work. You are in our prayers.
