Another day of slow but steady progress. She can talk but it is very faint...so she writes...a lot. At one point she noted that "the suction tube tastes like poison."
She did not do quite well enough on her swallowing test to get off tube feeding, but I expect her to pass tomorrow.
I expect her to be out of the ICU tomorrow or Wednesday and in rehab by the weekend.I hope that prediction is more accurate than was my bracket.
She mentioned that when visitors come, they should not try to get her to respond. She is very aware and will respond when she wants to.
