July 16th, 2018 – Can’t Stop The Feeling

From My Facebook Post:

Taylor Update: Can’t stop the feeling!

I haven’t really had a chance to post this early in the day before but I just can’t contain myself!

T had some very subtle movements this morning and I didn’t really feel like they were purposeful…

He may have closed his eyes on command… Maybe.

BUT… forget about that because shortly after, with Jennifer, Samantha, Joshua and me all in the room with him… He decided to show us he’s fighting and with us!

He was looking at each of us, individualy, on request, and smiling and even moving his head to music. ♥️

I decided to test him… I explained a little how much we love him and not to worry about anything.. I asked him to shake his head ‘yes’ if he understood… He did, then I just asked, can you shake your head no… He did. Smiling at all of us and even making frown faces for things he didn’t care for 😁😁😁😁

We interacted with him as a family for over 40 minutes… Dr’s coming in and saying ‘wow’.. I even asked one to repeat himself… Tears of joy filled the ICU staff and our family as many from the floor came over to watch!

He’s resting now… It wore him out.. But we are so excited about how much hope this brings to his recovery.

I don’t know what this means clinically, but we got to spend a good amount of time with him, acted like himself and I even feel like he was messing with me a few times.😎

His unconsciousness status is.. I don’t know. I don’t want to say it’s gone, because it isn’t – he’s not awake (YET!) … But I do know that he is trying to shake it off more and more each day. He’s still very weak and ‘in and out’ of it. The road is long, but our tank is full!

Dance, Dance, Dance, Dance!!
