Good News
I spoke to my grandmother yesterday. It was almost a normal conversation. I told her stories, she told me how wonderful I am (I LOVE how she does that!! Who wouldn't!!), I asked questions, she answered...And one of the things I love the most is that even though she has been totally out of it, it hasn't affected her vocabulary. I don't know why I thought it would, but you just don't expect a women who hasn't really spoken in two months and who has been as big of a mess as she has to use words like, "incognito" in just average conversation. And rather than saying yes, she says things like, "that would be wonderful." It gives me hope I guess to hear her say things like that. She's still not completely with us, but she is so much closer.

FINALLY, after I had said it about 10 times, my mother (who claimed the idea as her own, but we will ignore that) had the nurse's aid put her bridge back in. The bridge included her two front teeth. Think of how much your tongue hits those teeth when you talk. No wonder she was having a hard time speaking. My aunt (a PT) also said she hasn't really spoken or eaten much in the last two months. Her muscles are probably weakened and that is also affecting her speach. Amazing. It seems to be true so far. I am loathe to get hopeful, since she has bounced between coherancy and oblivion before, but it's hard not too when your grandmother responds to your saying, "I love you" with "I love you so much more than you will ever know."

I'm sorry about your grandma. I can't imagine how difficult it would be to see someone you love so much start to fade away like that. You're being a really good granddaughter to her.

Thanks, Reese. Well, she's a pretty spectacular grandmother.
