My mom had pneumonia which led to ARDS. She was intubated for 7 days.
Extubated 2 days ago but until today she is not able to speak yet.
You can only hear her try to talk but what comes out is just growls and very soft air sounds.
Anyone with the same experience?
How long would it take usually to speak?
I am starting to worry. She can understand us and answers our questions by nodding or shaking her head. Also she can obey commands when the physio asks her to move her limbs.
