By the time I left the hospital last night, mom was starting to be a bit more alert. She still slept most of the time, but when someone would touch her arm or speak to her, she would open her eyes and try to focus on the visitor. You could tell when she recognized them because a big smile would cross her face when our faces became clear to her.
Kari brought Ben and Anna, my grandkids and mom's great grand kids, up to the hospital for a few minutes last night. She had prepared them for the sight of their Nana with a shaved and bandaged head in the attempt to fix her broken brain, and both of the kids did very well. Ben was interested in all of the equipment, so I showed him all the wires and tubes and explained the different numbers and readouts on the various screens, and he said "cool!" Anna had a different view on things. When they had left the room, Kari asked Anna what she thought about seeing Nana with a bald head and Anna replied: "People look funny when they don't have hair..........like Nana and Britney Spears!" As Kari said on her blog, you an always count on Anna to bring a smile to your face. And the picture that I posted above always brings a smile to my face! Love you Ben and Anna!
