Happy Birthday, Belinda!

Today is Belinda's birthday and I won't tell how young she is - 29 and holding........yeah, that's it!

UPDATE:

The doctor took Mack's neck brace collar off this evening before Belinda left the hospital, which is great news. She said that Mack went right on to sleep as soon as the collar came off. He's been very active with his right arm, hand and leg for the past two days. Mack has been reaching up and pulling his tubing so Richard gave Mack a piece of tubing in his right hand and Mack held on to it and tried to scratch his head with it. We don't know if that is considered a deliberate action or reactive action. The doctor's are looking for signs like that which indicate that Mack is starting to recover from his vegetative state. Maybe the new medication is also causing some of this kind of reaction in Mack. We hope so.

I had a dream this past weekend that Mack had scooted out of bed, stood up and started walking. It seemed so real - I hope that it was a sign that something dramatically good will happen soon. Maybe he will start talking soon too. We're hoping and praying for the best outcome each day, all the time. Miracles DO happen if you believe.

Much love, Ruth & Richard
