My dad’s slow progress

My dad had surgery Wednesday and then had two seizures that night while recovering. They put him on anti-seizure medication and, while he did have a third seizure soon after, the seizures have stopped. That’s good. But 6 days later he still has not woken up! Because of Covid, my mom can’t even visit him in the hospital so we had a Zoom call with him hoping he’d hear our voices and we could encourage him to wake up. But this afternoon, we heard that he partially opened his eyes after being asked to by the nurse and he is pulling back from pain tests (pinching, touching his hand, etc) which is the first positive sign. I’m very hopeful for the first time in days.
