Many thanks for your prayers for Rudi.
He has confounded the doctors and has now come out of his coma. He has been able to say a few words. One side of his body is badly affected, and his speech is very slurred, but nevertheless he is awake, aware and trying to communicate.
Any extra time he has with his family is a blessing, as his grandaughter is pregnant.
The power of prayer should never be underestimated :-)
