Laura retains her sense of humor and her thinking abilities. She's loved our re-reading of the Great Brain books. And she still loves a good joke. (It's a little discouraging that the words she's thinking just don't come out of her mouth as she thought them.) She accidentally says words when not really trying--big ones,too, like definitely, hilarious, actually, and has several phrases that she can say at will. It's coming--will just take a little more time. But through it all her attitude has remained upbeat and enthusiastic. They loved her at the rehab center because she just wouldn't give up and was always willing to try again. If things don't work well she just laughs and tries again.
It will be good to get home and see if I can straighten out everything that has stacked up in the last weeks since I've been gone.
