Quick Update: 10/6/2010
 
Sorry it took so long for this update, there hadn't been anything new to report.  Jeff had a good morning today.  Seems that he had his eyes open this morning for a while and was tracking the Occupational Therapist all around the room.  He also moved his hand 10 out of 10 times when asked to do so by the OT. 
 
I'm heading up to visit him tomorrow after work, I will give another update then.
 
Please keep up the positive thoughts and prayers. 
 
Frank

Great news, Frank!

I posted a link to the fundraiser on my FB page along with a link to the raffle.

Keep moving forward, Jeff.

Thanks for keeping us informed Frank.  We all pray for Jeff's full recovery.  I feel a sour beer coming on. :)

Update: 10/7/2010

I went up to visit Jeff today.  According to his wife and parents he had his best day yet.  He was awake for over a half hour today.  That's the longest period of time so far.  He was looking all around his room, tracking his parents, his wife and a couple friends that were visiting.  He even watched a little Sports Center.   Everyone talked to him and just enjoyed the moment, they didn't bother to call in the doctors or nurses.  Unfortunately by the time I showed up, the show was over and he was sleeping pretty heavily.  Apparently being awake like that really wears him out. 

A bit later on, Jeff's father was moving Jeff's feet and he opened his eyes again, we all started talking to him and his Mom told us to do it one at a time.  I was standing next to him on his left and I began talking to him, he looked right at me.  He also looked at some of the other people in the room when they talked to him.  This only lasted a few minutes, but this time you could tell he was really looking at you,  that there was some real comprehension going on.  A couple weeks ago I visited him, he opened his eyes briefly but it was just a blank stare.   

So that's two days in a row, where he was awake for an extended period.   Maybe it's really happening now!

Keep up the thoughts and prayers!

Frank
