Stan is fairly stable at the moment -- not much has changed. He is a bit more responsive now though. His eyes move (under his eyelids) when the doctors or his wife (Jean) talk to him. He has also squeezed Jean's hand on an ocassion or two. He gradually responded to some physical stimuli as well. The doctors will hold up his arm and ask him to move his fingers, which, after REPEATED attempts he has managed to do a couple of times. The doctors also "poked" at his feet which resulted in his moving them a bit.

You'll notice my caution in reporting that the doctors must REPEATEDLY go through these routines to get slight responses, and Stan doesn't respond every time. Needless to say, we are hopeful and optimistic about his recovery. Comparatively, his progress is a bit better than others who have had similar injuries.

The accident is still being investigated, and I have no additional information at this time.
