I started him on the coconut oil, and his dementia has not returned. The cognitive skills test done January 7 was 24 out of 30, quite a jump from the 11 out of 30 he was before. About the only thing he was still having problems with on the test was math, something which is coming back gradually.
Last week he started getting ambitious. He figured that we needed more shelving for our videos, so he decided to build a set of shelfs. I cut the boards, since his hands still are rather shaky, but he did everything else. It's a huge accomplishment for someone who, a few weeks ago, couldn't even dress himself.
The past year has taken us on quite an emotional ride, and I thank all of you who stuck with us and prayed us through each dip and turn.
I hope that this year I will be able to get back to the series I was trying to write about past experiences we have had while following God's leading, but if I can't resist throwing in a note of praise for what God is doing right now in the present, I'm sure you will understand.
