Molly Kolstad wrote that her husband is becoming more engaged with visitors, laughing at jokes and managing to say a few simple words. Molly Kolstad delivered the couple’s second child on June 4, and Isaac has been able to bond with his new daughter despite his condition.
"It continues to amaze us the connection he has made with her through this ordeal," Molly Kolstad wrote. "He truly, truly knows he is a daddy and we see this all the time with his interactions with the girls. When I get to the hospital, he gives me a smile then reaches to hold Malia. When Malia cries he is the first to reach out and want to hold her and comfort her."
Molly Kolstad wrote that Isaac has a long road ahead to a full recovery, but his continued progress gives the family hope.
