Mike's physical therapist reported that, today, Mike sqeezed and released both hands on request (still stronger on the right side), and that he opened his eyes on request!  Are you sitting down?  He also raised his right arm for her when she asked him to help her to do it, and she indicated that she saw some flexion of muscle!!!  (Probably just showing off.)

Mike's neurosurgeons want to allow another week for dissipation of fluid before a transfer will occur, so another CT scan will occur on Monday.  The additional time in the ICU will give him more opportunity for better and more consistent responsiveness, which is being evaluated continuously as the rehabilitation facility best-suited to his care is determined.

Excepting only his first day in the hospital – when Mike's life was saved – this may have been his best single day of recovery yet!  Grace really is amazing.
