Unexplained

I dont know how or why but Aunt Bev is like reversing is the only way I can describe it. 3 weeks ago she was in the hospital and lucky to make it couldn't speak a word for months her hand started shaking in the hospital and I asked them to up her merpex 1 pill I took her to the coast for two days because I thought she was close to going but boy am I wrong on the way home she started all of a sudden speaking full sentences when we got home she has been trying to get out of bed and walk I think after about 5 to 10 trips to the pool to get her legs stronger after laying in hospital bed for so long she will honestly walk yesterday she said give me the walker and tried to get up now mind you she has not moved or spoke in a long time I asked her what she thought and she said it was me uping her merpex I dont know but it is almost like she is reversing some how I cant explain it and I and every one who talks to her is just shocked. I hope all is well and i send lots of hugs.

Amazing! I am so glad for you and your aunt. Keep her going to the pool and keep her on the Merpex...never heard of it but I am going to look it up. Drugs and exercise can work wonders, but you know what is the best "medicine"? wonderful family like you! You keep up the positive energy, and your auntie will reap the benefits!

My John can be a lot like that . But in his case it's the Meds working against him . At least that's what it seem to be to me .

I do hope the merpex continues to help improvement or even stablize

That's amazing Kryste. Long may it last! Now that she can speak, I wonder if she can describe what it was like before? I do wonder what my sweetheart is thinking when he can't express himself.
