Sunday, October 19th
Not much to report today. She was alert when we first got there in the morning, but then fell asleep, and was asleep again when we saw her in the late afternoon. This is good though, the doctors tell us. Sleep is healing. When she was alert and had her eyes open, they were both about the same size, but as she got more tired the left eye began to sag. Her face is not obviously lopsided as with many stroke patients, so perhaps those muscles are not too affected. She only tried to speak once, and that was a grunt, so it looks like her speech center and her right arm are the 2 areas most heavily affected.
I'll let you know of any news tomorrow, and thanks again for your good wishes and prayers,
Anna and Eddie
