This is good news! YES!

You’ve been doing very well in getting your ideas, concerns and frustrations across to us. Don’t worry about that? Just keep trying!
That she is improving, tho slowly? IS good news. Just remember tho, that even blinking her eyes can be an exhausting effort. This condition makes you sooo tired! For example, you take a sip of water? Then nap for 4 hours!
I do have to ask tho? Are the docs getting her to sit up? I understand that this is very important to both being able to breathe better [avoiding pneumonia] and also to improve overall body circulation. Also, have any physical therapists started to do exercises on her arms and legs? Just keeping THEM moving is useful in the long run.
Remember, that with this sort of immune system assualt to a person’s body, it will take a long time and a lot of work, exercise, and encouragements to get thru it! Most of us never just ‘get better’ then, up and out of bed. Wish it were different, but it is not to be.
My heart and my prayers are with you, your mother and all of your family.
Please, please keep us up to date on her progress! We care!
