I saw my husband last night and we were all very surprised. He looks well, a much better colour, he can walk with a stick and can raise his right arm. Aside from Yes and No he only makes a few very short sentences. But there's a lot he can remember and we laughed and joked and he laughed too. And he has a good appetite.
Amanda the OT nurse rang me yesterday afternoon to report on his progress and to ask me how he normally behaves. Obviously he is not entirely normal yet. I paid for him to have TV and phone and he even remembered my number but he seems unable to make a phone call yet. I have rung him a couple of times already, he's quick to answer but I can hear from his stilted manner he can't collect his thoughts as yet. He asks no questions at all, which is so unlike him. It would be the first thing he asked, how am I and how is the dog!
Amanda will assess him again on Monday to see how he would manage at home and what help he may need at first. Stanley and Jenny are back and will call and see him tonight.
He has come so far in less than a week. So what would you make of all this? I truly believe it's the Power of Prayer.
All you faithful Prayer Warriors out there from all over the world, men and women.....you really cannot imagine how much I have appreciated you all, doing this for someone you have never met. I never believed when I asked for your prayers I would get such a response! Your words have been such a comfort to me. So to all you wonderful people, I thank you from the bottom of my heart!
God bless you all,
