Yesterday was a very good day. My dear friend's son had a major fall 19 days ago. He had been in a level 4 coma. These are evry confusing because they are agitated, uncomfortable and may get in and out of bed, pull out tubes and often look like they are doing things purposefully-- making it hard to know when they are purposeful.
Well yesterday in the morning he spoke! Then his feeding tube was removed and he fed himself!!! Lots. Like a teen who hadn't eaten in 18 days. Then he was able to answer the questions, Do you know me? and What is my name? His mom just about flew home from the rehab!
