just got this post on our site in Dallas. (
one of his friends who was with him during the accident posted up about his progress, entitled, 'COLBY IS AWAKE!'

"just got news that colby has been interacting during his physical therapy! Hes standing for a short period of time on his own and sitting up, he gets tired fast but this is a great thing! Also hes communicating with the nurses threw grunts and groans. The nurse gave him some water and asked him to drink it, He didnt do it but she then told him to blow bubbles in the water if he didnt want to drink it and he did! looks like the prayers are working guys ill keep you informed on his progress!"

just wanted to keep y'all updated...
