Troy was very restful today. The girls and I spent some time with him this morning. He wasn't very active this morning, but after yesterday afternoon we didn't expect him to do much. His best friend Joseph and his wife, Kathy, drove up from Florida to see him today. Joe and his wife drove back home today around 2pm and the girls went with them. It was sad to see them go and me being separated from them again, but it will be good for them to be home in a more steady environment.

After they left I went back to Troy's room and sat with him until about 7:30pm. During my time there with him he didn't do much but sleep, but at one point I did get him to open his eyes for me when I called his name. He didn't leave them open long, nor did he focus on me, but it was really good to see some type of reaction to a familiar voice. Also, he moved his left arm quite a bit and he's constantly moving his left leg.

I'm looking forward to what tomorrow will bring. He's rested off the busy day he had yesterday so I hope he'll be more alert tomorrow for me to report :)


  1. Praying for you, Joan. Your steady gaze on the Lord is so encouraging. Cheering you on in the Lord,

    Hi Joan, Im Liz, Joey's sister... My thoughts and prayers are with your family and Troy everyday. Thank you so much for these updates, I read them every night. I can't wait for the day you've updated "He is awake!" With the lord on our side... soon enough.
