It has been a month today since my husband Steven suffered brain injuries in a hit and run and he's finally starting to improve.
Only yesterday doctors managed to wean him of the life support machine because a week ago today he started to breath by himself and this afternoon I was with Steven at his bedside in the ICU when I felt him squeeze my hand, when I mentioned our baby son Andrew. I then saw him open his eyes for the first time since the accident.
Since opening his eyes this afternoon, Steven hasn't said anything yet to anyone, including me.
I'm so pleased/glad he's starting to get better.
