Wednesday, July 14: Update

Claire had another test with the neuropsychologists today. She scored the same on all dimensions except one: Claire followed a simple command today which improved her Rappaport score. The doctor told Claire to raise her arm. She did. Claire had followed some commands with us when not in a therapy session. It was nice to have one of the practitioners witness it and record it as a positive move out of the coma. It also put us in good spirits for the rest of the day.

Today’s pool therapy session was much improved from yesterday. The warm pool and absence of fire alarms encouraged a positive outcome.

All in all it was a good day. Claire worked hard and kept up with the aggressive therapy pace. She crashed around 7:30 PM and was sleeping soundly the last I spoke with my mom. I hope it continues through the night.

My apologies for the abbreviated update. My reserves are running thin and I’m headed for bed. Thank you for all the prayers and support.
