I have hesitated to post an update on Bob, as the progress has been slow, and his condition was less than hopeful. He could not swallow. He could only speak a few words, and they were very hard to understand. He had little to no movement on the right side of his body. He has experienced intense pain, requiring SERIOUS pain killing drugs, since his first seizure. However, a lot of that changed this week. Here is the message Lisa posted on our family webpage yesterday (edited slightly to protect privacy):
Thanks to all for your faith in fasting and praying for Bob. Sunday, things started to improve tremendously. Monday, he ate roast beef, potatoes, soup, pudding - the works. Wow!! Today, he wrote his name and stood with help. First time out of bed in almost 5 weeks. Tomorrow, he will be transferred to "Outstanding Local Neuro" Rehab facility.
The men in our church have been taking turns staying with Bob at night so that he is safe. and so that I can go home and sleep. What a blessing that has been. Heavenly Father is blessing Bob and it is so wonderful to see. I am doing well - I definitely have times when I'm overwhelmed, but the Lord has strengthened me and sent friends and family to support me.
Keep praying those prayers. My prayer now is that he'll be able to tolerate the intensive therapy. I think he will.
