Tonight the neurologist told us that the pathways that were/are hurt from the stroke can be repaired with use. This is exciting! It doesn't mean that it will necessarily all be able to be healed but it does mean that things can get better as the pathways recreate themselves. Time will tell... With the new growth that we have seen today, we are all very optimistic about the situation! Considering Helen's strong personality and her need to GO GO GO, we are sure that we will see even more growth and are excited about what each moment has to bring us. It is enlightening to know from everything can come a smile, a moment of aha, and a remembrance that life is truly grand! We are working to remember to "Do all you can with what you have, in the time you have, in the place you are!"
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.
-Mother Teresa of Calcutta
Thank heavens we have each other as a source of peace and comfort!
