Terry's week was pretty good, for the most part.  He has been moany the last couple of days, but not sick.  He's dozing in his recliner right now. :)

He's still saying a word here and there.

I heard back from Dr Steinberg in CA.  There's nothing they can do to help him.  So, now we know.

We'll just keep going and enjoy every little glimpse of Terry we get, for as long as we get them.

Thank you all so much for your prayers.  I appreciate you all so much.

Took Terry to a movie yesterday.  I'd like to report that he really enjoyed it, but he mostly slept. :(
He did, however, stay awake for the bus ride!

He has started moaning a lot, again.  I'm afraid we may be dealing with another infection.  Please keep him in your prayers.  It's so sad to see him in pain and not know what to do about it.

One day at a time....

Oh, one more thing.  I need prayers, please.  Yesterday I sent a package with copies of all Terry's MRI's, PET Scans and reports to Stanford University Medical Center.  There's a Neurosurgeon there, Dr. Steinberg, that has helped a lot of people with unusual illnesses. 

I've talked with them and they will review his records and let us know if there's anything they might can do.  They meet on Monday afternoons to review cases. 

Please pray that they can do something for him to improve his quality of life.

Thank you Tom and TyJuana for telling me about this doctor!  As my friend Sandy used to say:  The answer is always no unless you ask...
Terry's been home over 2 weeks!  Time does indeed fly!  It has really been busy!  We got his bi-pap and it's taken him some time to get used to it.  We hardly slept for 3 nights in a row, but he seems to have settled in with it, now.  

Right now (and for the last several hours) he's sitting in his wheel chair watching me.  I've been working in the office all afternoon.  (It's actually our dining room turned into an office, so I can see him when he's in the living room in his recliner, also.)  Today, for the first time in a couple of months, he held his cup and drank from it by himself!  And he's been eating pretty well!

Thanks to everyone who sent him birthday wishes.  I'm not sure he actually understood what was going on.  We had a small party for him, just Shannon, Bryan and the boys, Emily and me.  He always seems to enjoy watching the kids while they're here.
