So I am in my hotel room resting for a minute because I have the night shift tonight. Trent and I have a deal where we turn off our phones when we go back to the room with the understanding that the other one will call the room phone if something goes wrong. Well I was deep asleep and my room phone rang. I jumped up and ran across to answer it and it was stupid guest relations just making sure my stay was going okay. REALLY?!? It was going great until she about gave me a heart attack! Now as I sit to update everyone, my legs are still shaking and my heart is about to jump out of my chest. Thanks lady.
Okay so onto the update because I am not sure if I will get a chance tonight. Maggie has done very well today. She is even more alert than yesterday. There is not a ton of return at her extremities or eyes but she is acknowledging the existence of her right hemisphere by turning her head to see things there more. She is also talking to herself and just taking in her surroundings more.
(She is trying to give the PT her IV here. She can't figure out why she can hold it but not give it away)
Apparently she smiled for the PT but as soon as I got there with my phone, she stopped. I did catch her grinning at her Nana though and even mimicking like she used to. We are starting to see more personality come back today. It is not her in all of her over the top splendor but she is coming back to us slowly.
