Here is an update on my mother, who lives in Nicaragua. She is still in the hospital and probably will be for the next few days. When she arrived in the hospital, she was incoherent and was not able to speak. Last night she was sitting up in her bed, feeding herself and shooting a dirty look to whoever it was that was video taping her eating. This morning and today she is talking, slowly but intelligently; my younger sister spoke with her this morning and said that her Spanish was actually better than her English, for once in her life.
So today I am so very grateful that my mother is showing signs of improvement. Her life is definitely changed and is going to continue to change; she may not accept that currently or ever, if you know my mom, but today she is better than she was on Monday; so I am grateful for that.
