I received this from Linda Butts:
I just heard from Russell Jones and he said to thank everyone for the prayers. God is so good, even the doctors are amazed at the progress his son has made in the past 48 hours. Jonathan is recognizing people now and the swelling of his brain has gone down tremendously. He requests we continue to pray for Jonathan’s wife who is in medical school and must keep going to class and for Russell and Stephanie as they adjust work schedules to be with him (even if he gets to go home). Also, Jonathan’s speech has not returned to normal yet, but they feel confident that will come with time.
