I wanted to share some good news with you all. For well over a year now my mum has not been able to speak to us and we have explored so many avenues trying to communicate with her. Its been horrible and I think we all felt that we had lost her.
However, she can now speak to us in phrases and even sentences that we can understand! It is completely wonderful for me, I really do feel like I have my mum back. Sometimes we have to ask her to repeat things but the improvement is remarkable!
It could be as a result of a change in medication. She has been taken off a strong sedating medication called trazadone and put on amitriptaline. She is also on the Brighton trial of Davunetide but I am too cautious to say it could be as a result of that as we don't even know whether she is on the placebo or the medication.
Whatever, I am loving it. It makes everything else easier to bear, just being able to have a chat with my mum again.
