Our relative (the one who had the bad car accident) started talking yesterday. I wasn’t there when it happened; I visited him today. He slept the whole time I was there, so I didn’t hear him talk. But it was real, restful sleep, not the twilight sleep we were seeing before.
He’s in a different ward, and he no longer has a tube up his nose. His hands were out of the “mittens” when I saw him. In addition to a nurse, he has a “companion” who stays with him all the time. The one definite thing the companion told me was that when someone was introduced to him, he said “Nice to meet you,” which shows his brain is working.
He talked to his dad, among other people.
He looked much better this time. I am greatly relieved. It’s only taken two weeks, and that’s not bad, considering the level of trauma. I hope I get to hear him talk next time.
Thank you for all of your prayers.
