Jenny is looking so very good. She feels very discouraged and is fighting the idea of therapies at home, but she is really getting better much faster, even though she has not done much physical therapy. Her body is not experincing spasms and she was able to hold her head for several minutes without support today. Her body thermostat is becoming more normal all the time. Jenny reports that her double vision is pretty much gone and her eating/swallowing/mouth movements are better than ever. Jenny would not agree to there being improvments, but she has numerous. We are working out the bugs with nursing and routines, but I think things are going well.
I carried Jenny upstairs for a chance to see our new painted walls and our bedroom. She napped with me on our bed and the kids all joined in to hug on their mom. It felt good to have this type of experince as a family again. I feel good about the future of Jenny’s rehabilitation.
