Subj:  Stan Fox Update
Date:  95-06-19 15:51:46 EDT

Stan had one of, if not THE, best day so far yesterday! The doctors sat him upright in a chair for about 2-1/2 hours, and he kept his eyes open the entire time! In fact, he seemed to visually follow a nurse who walked by his room. His "unfocused gaze" is apparently getting a bit better as well; he doesn't seem to have such a blank stare. He also tried to scratch his face while sitting up.

Previously, the doctors had to "wake" him in order for him to open his eyes, but he now can "wake" himself. He still hasn't spoken, however; because his "semi-conscious" state doesn't seem to allow it.

He is still being fed intravenously with a high protein liquid. The doctors expect he might lose as much as twenty pounds during his recovery. He has also been given a medication to coat his stomach since the high protein will likely upset it.

Hopefully, this week will be a good start for his recovery. I'll keep you posted.

As always, thanks for your concern.

Sincerely,

Brian Hemelgarn Hemelgarn Racing

Stan has made good progress so far this week. He regularly wakes up on his own, and today, he grabbed Jean's (his wife) hand and kissed it! The doctors are asking him routine questions to test his memory, and Stan is nodding in response!! He has also grinned a couple of times -- in the impish way that Stan grins.. ha, ha, ha.

Lets keep our fingers crossed that this progress continues.

I'll hopefully be reporting more good news soon....

Thanks for all the blessings and wishes.

Sincerely,

Brian Hemelgarn Hemelgarn Racing
