Mom has started speaking more : asking where we are and what time I'll be home from work. This is another great improvement :) The first thing she said to me when she came home and got settled in bed was "I have no more pain." What a wonderful thing to hear!
If you'd like to visit, this is the best time. She dozes off and on so you can drop by anytime. Now that there are no nurses and doctors coming in every hour to check on her, she will appreciate some company.
Dad, Sonny and Mike have done up Mom's room. Nice TV and aircon. She's still not used to it yet, but as usual she's being a good sport. Anyway, both Mom and our wonderful maid Robena are comfortable in that room so I think in time, she will adjust.
