Mama didn’t respond to any commands today, but she did move quite a bit. She seems to be having a lot of involuntary responses to people talking and to the exercises that the occupational therapist is working her through. He again mentioned how her range of motion has improved.
Today they gave her a feeding tube, though they haven’t started using it yet. The nutritionist is supposed to come by in the morning to determine what they need to be feeding her. They’re also in the process of changing her anti-seizure medication to a different kind. It’s possible that the current anti-seizure medication is preventing her from waking up, so they’re going to see if changing it helps her wake up.
Today Bo drove back down to Jacksonville, and he’s staying with her tonight. I’ll drive back down tomorrow and stay with her tomorrow night.
