Mom is surprising everyone with her progress. While we are reminded to not forget what may happen in the coming week, we can't help but celebrate the miracles we have seen.
Yesterday Mom asked for water among a few other things she needed. It is such a thrill to hear her quiet voice say anything! She even asked me how long until I have to go home.
A definite highlight was when we saw her personality come out in a little sarcasm.
She has done well answering many questions to see if she knows her name and where she is.
The nights are rough as she tries to pull at the many tubes and wires she's connected to or scratches at the staples in her head.
Dad is, as I'm sure you'd imagine, a valiant protector of all that is good for mom. From turning away visitors to choosing music for her to listen to, he has not left her side. His love for her has never been more evident.
He is draws strength from the well wishes by text, email, or on this blog. Knowing of the prayers offered for our family has really touched him, and all of us.
We love you MommaJo.
