Morgan had another wonderful day.....she was showing me just how smart she is...she got upset and cried twice..I showed her an old school picture, and she remembered her friend, but she couldn't speak...and the second time she cried, was because she wanted to speak to grandma, and couldn't talk...but she did make the phone sign with her fingers, which I didn't even know she knew lol
DH shaved his head, because she is upset about hers, and he walked into the room...and she pointed to her head, then to his,...she knew immediatly he shaved...and this morning, she took a makeup brush, and dipped it in make up and put it on his face...( we call him papa bear )
she also SMILED!!! It was the most amazing thing in the world to see...one side is paralized, and the other side feels numb from swelling, but she didn't let that hold her back!...we learned more hand signs..and she remembers older things, she is able to point out who is who in pictures...and we even discussed buying a new dress for her..and she was able to stop me to indicate what color she wanted, then showed me her nails ( which we painted ) to tell me she wanted the dress the same color....my dear friend and neighbor who has been helping me and is the one who is setting up the donation fund for us and morgan..came down today, and she remembered her immediatly....the OT and PT both said they feel muscle movement on the left side..so there is a great chance she will regain use of her arm and leg.
Since she is now able to show the difference between pain, itchy, and funny feeling she is helping the nurses treat her symptoms. and I know I said this, but she smiled!! I feel guilty for not being able to go back till tomorow night, because it has done her a world of good me being there working with her all weekend..but i guess that is just the way it has to be....I came home today with smiles on my face for the first time in weeks! :)
