Colson showed signs of progress Thursday, officials from Prison Fellowship told CT. He can hear, process information, and do commands given to him. “And that makes all the difference,” his attending physician said. Colson's daughter, Emily, said that when his doctors were visiting on Wednesday, Colson gave them a “thumbs up.” He continues to be listed in critical condition on Thursday afternoon.
