Oh. my. goodness. What a change from a week ago when we last saw our son in law. Then he was heavily sedated and unconscious, in intensive care, and the outcome, we were told, could go any which way.
Today he’s sitting up, still in the high-dependency ward. He’s talking and reasonably lucid, and managing to keep down solid food for the first time. The twinkle in his eye is back, along with his sense of humour, although he is still very fragile and his short-term memory isn’t yet very reliable.
He still has a long way to go, but the fact that he’s come this far in a week is wonderful.
