Reunion!

Heather, Holli's sister, and Doug, her step-dad, arrived in San Francisco today. This was the first time Diane had seen either of them since she left for India in late February. I'm sure it was a great reunion! Heather said that Holli is now opening both eyes very wide and looking around alot. She is also kicking her left leg really hard. She said that it seems sometimes as if she's trying to get out of bed. When Heather first arrived and was speaking to Holli, Holli grabbed her hands and squeezed them really tight. She said that she then "got really worked up" like she's trying to communicate but can't. She felt that Holli is getting frustrated at not being able to talk to them. She also said that Holli can definitely hear and recognize voices as evidenced by her reactions to them. Diane says that just in the past few days, she has noticed subtle changes in Holli for the better.

Diane now has a laptop, and as soon as she gets it up and running, she will be able to post as well. Please be looking for these, and let her know how much we are all praying for her. As someone who has dealt with something very similar, it makes such a difference to know you are being lifted up in prayer.

Thanks

Jill

I am soooo happy all the family is together at last....Yea!!! I didn't call yesterday, Diane, so you could give them all your attention, but I thought of you and prayed for you all continously. Holli is coming around...it's just slow, but she'll get there. I love you all so much!! Hang in there, sister.

What a blessing that she's changing so quickly! I would love to go visit her, but it's so far. Ask Diane to tell her that I love her and my family is praying for her. Praise God!!!

From the pictures I've seen of her, Hollis looks great—I mean, amazingly great for a coma patient. It's so encouraging to hear her brain is clearly active; I agree she's changing fast, and I'm on the edge of my seat for the next report.

I would definitely get on a plane in a heartbeat if I could; having been in a month-long coma in 1981, it scares me a little to talk to coma patients, but I feel it's something I have to do when I can.

Thank you for the recent photos; she is so beautiful and it's very encouraging to read each new report.

Thank you for your bravery and constant reports. We truly appreciate it and hope for Holli's full recovery. I wish I lived closer to SF so I could come and speak to her and give her more words of encouragement. Thanks for being our link to her healing. Lees
