Fran, April 30

Fran got some rest and was much better today. Her awareness level was as good or better than any time since the stroke.  Her mood was pretty good as well. I spent time learning some of the things I will need to know to care for her. Some of it is not very hard, like moving her between the wheelchair and the bed. Some of the other stuff is pretty difficult.  Both Fran and I will need to improve.

Fran has some sensation and some muscle responses on the left side, but no voluntary movement.  Her awareness of the area to her left is getting a lot better.  Originally, that part of the world did not seem to exist for her.

We are looking for live-in help.  Ana has some good leads and is working on the project.

Fran and I were unfortunately not able to attend today's celebration of life for our recently deceased friend, Ed Arkin. He was a good man and we will miss him.
