Today has been a miracle! About 8:00 AM my mom began to utter words! Her first words were "Please, cold drink". Since she can't swallow yet we couldn't give her anything and that was torture for us. We were told we could run a wet swab in her mouth so we did and she loved that.
Throughout the day we asked her questions such as "what's your name?", "what year is it?" "where are you?", etc. She answered all of the questions and more! What a blessing!
She still can't open her eyes, but I feel awed by her courage (even though when I told her she was brave, she said the she was a crybaby). Go Miss Lillie!
