Friday Morning

Well this morning there wasn't any major change. I didn't get there till early afternoon when Loebsack and Latham came to visit David. We talked about Iowa and the different places we lived and they brought an afghan with the Capitol Building on it and the flag that was flown over the Capital Building in honor of David. When they left dad proceeded to tell us that he was moving his head in a backward action as if he were trying to do something or say something we don't know. He also moved his right eye which is the most damaged which is new for us too. He is still taking the baby steps, but as we all hope we want him to open his eyes and talk to us, but for now we will take the baby steps.
We all as a family including Melissa are going out tonight for dinner near the same building that this flag was flown. It has been a hard trying week with some good baby steps. It will be a nice relaxing time and hopefully we will keep getting the positive baby steps in the weeks to come.


  1. I'm so glad he is continuing to take those baby steps in the right direction! He is always in our thoughts and we will keep all of you in our prayers. Thank you for taking the time to post updates, we check them often throughout the day! It's good to hear you guys are taking some time to relax this evening, it will help you all to stay strong throughout this journey.
