11 days ago we were told that Bea had a few days or maybe at best a week left. She is still very much here and showing modest improvement every day. She is awake and aware all day. This has been the case for a week. She started smiling on Thanksgiving. Today I held her hand up to her Kindle and she moved enough and pointed her finger to choose her own cartoon to watch. She is trying so very hard to talk. She can often squeeze my hand with her left hand when I ask her.
Assuming she stays this stable or better we are hoping to get her home early this week. It seems highly likely we can do it and we asked Bea if she wants to go home. Her response? A smile and a squeeze.
