I want to thank everyone so much for their prayers - I read your comments to Mom today and she was surprised. (Don't know why - quilters have big hearts!) Lindsey is improving every day, was allowed to eat today and they got him up and moving a little bit, sitting up in a chair. He really struggles with words, but seems to be able to write them, or at least comes close enough that we can guess them. But his thoughts are so random that it's hard to follow his thoughts. It sort of becomes a big guessing game and when we get close he points and says yes. When he can't get the words out that he wants to say, then he says "that" and when he wants to talk about a person he says "Jim". And then he will look at us and say "It's easy."
So, at some point today I just couldn't help myself and started laughing..."you know that and that, it went like that, and Jim went like that, and you know, that and that, Thursday, you know, that and that Jim...you know, it's easy." That was an example of one of the conversations. I told him that I should record him, "because it's easy." At least he laughed at that, and keeps trying. He was able to say his name today, but mine is way too difficult yet. He seems to be in really good spirits, which is half the battle I think. I'll keep everyone posted on progress. Quilting friends really are the best and I think God that I have this wonderful group of quilters in my corner everyday!
