Hi, this is one of those good posts! S, for some reason, is in a really good place. Speech is great, ( for PSP) spoke more words in the last few days, than he has in the last six months! Eating has improved, haven't had to feed him for a couple of days. Even able to drink.
The downside? Well, he thinks he can now get up and more around. Had to peel him off the fire hearth yesterday! Only a few steri stitches to his eye brow. Missed the log burner by inches. Thought that stage was done and dusted. Wrong again!
To hear his voice again, (trying not to cry!) well, I don't need to explain!
He is off into respite on Monday. Anybody want to start a book for how long before he ends up on the floor? I will take odds for seconds after I leave him!!!
I am doing my level best to let him do things for himself again, but it's such a shock. I am deliberately not understanding, when he is trying to say something. Listening to him cheer England on tonight against South Africa (rugby!) was something I thought I would never hear again........
This disease has to be the cruelest thing around. I was beginning to accept, that time was running out for us. Now? Who knows. Someone has just planted that seed of hope back in my brain.
Please, please, someone find a cure for this hateful illness, can't believe it's not possible. It's obvious, S has no real brain damage, well none that can't be lived with. Something has triggered this improvement. If only I knew what, so I could bottle it!!!
Lots of love
