Today is a great day! So great that I'm not even going to write much. Instead I'm going to sit down and watch an episode of Big Love on HBO on demand.
In short, today was the best I've seen Mike in 2 months. Strong (able to turn himself onto his side in bed without my help!), eyes opened wide (right eye was only slightly more squinted than the other), chipper, happy, good color in his cheeks, and charming as ever. Short term memory is still an issue, but shows signs of promise. Incontinence still a problem, and vision is still bad. He also doesn't really initiate conversation much. But -he's good at joking with you if you start the joking and talking with you if you start the talking. They think the new steriod is working for him and they changed his dose of DDAVP, so his sodium is in the 140-145 range where Mike always seems to do a little better.
So happy long weekend to all of us! And Yay for Mr. Invincible. Seriously. Imagine. He still has those freaking cysts in there - and somehow his body is finding ways around them to heal.
