The visitors over the weekend must have been very therapeutic. Fran was more alert and energetic than at any time after the stroke. I did not speak with the physical therapist, but I did see the speech therapist, and Fran appears to be progressing on her swallowing. She drank some water without incident.
We have scheduled a "family conference" on Friday. There the chief physician and the staff will explain where we are, where we need to go, etc. Fran's current release date is May 3, but that is not carved in cement. We will know more about that on Friday.
