Mike's condition has remained stable and, for the most part, unchanged throughout the day.  Part of his treatment required the use of a short-term sedative this morning, and Dr. Brayton was not surprised that Mike's responsiveness was off, when he met with Mike this afternoon.  However, Mike's nurse, Angela, commented that she may have seen an effort to show her two fingers around 4:00 pm, so we are hopeful going into this evening that Mike can show us a little more before the day ends.  Please pray that his responses not only strengthen, but that they improve in consistency.

Specific things to pray for could include opening his eyes in response to a verbal request or spontaneously, or any movement of his lips in an effort to speak (the oxygen line would, of course, preclude any audible speech at this time).

I will be with Mike for much of the night, trying to encourage him to really push himself.  Look for another update later tonight!  Pray for exciting news!
