Troy had a good day today. His mom, daughter, aunt and niece came by to visit today. Today was the first time his daughter saw him since the accident; she was pleased with how he looked. She has not wanted to see him because she was scared of how he looked and how bad he would be. It was nice to see that she wasn't too upset or scared with how he looked. This is all so new and she handled it very well! Also, Charlene was able to feed Troy his dinner and he did really well eating and took a few sips from his cup today with her. That was very sweet to watch. We had a great time talking, reminiscing and talking about the Lord. Troy also managed to stay very alert while they were here and that was nice too because they got to spend a few hours with him talking to him and interacting with him.

Troy has been doing really well. He seems to be on the verge of emerging from the coma; he is just so active with his left arm and left leg and is so aware of his surroundings. Just by watching him I can always tell something is wrong with him either by the movements he makes, the look on his face or him groaning, grunting or moaning.

He is still having trouble with his right leg at the hip. Also, today, while I was stretching his right arm and doing range of motion exercises I noticed he grimaced and groaned when I lifted his arm above his head. I will mention that to the therapist on Monday because it seems that he needs to have more stretching exercises on his right arm and right leg to help with the stiffness and soreness from not moving it.

Thank you all for the emails, thoughts and prayers.
