Hey brother. Mom had a bad couple of days but tonight she really came to and asked to sit up in a chair. She drank broth and drank some juice. And then i just hugged her and held her and she said she loved me. It was so encouraging because she hadnt really spoken for a few days. I think things are going to be ok. But it is going to take a long time. I hope.

Hey everyone,
I just thought I would do a little update on my mom. Thank you all so much for all of your kind words, good vibes, prayers, fasting and love! We are really feeling it. My mom is doing better. Yesterday for the first time in two days she began to really respond cognitively and began speaking to us. She asked to get out of bed and sit in the chair in her room. Most of all she wanted to go home, she cried out a little and I think she realized that she has a long road ahead. It was so very encouraging though. When she sat up last night we fed her some broth and she drank juice. And then I sat and held her and hugged her. It did us both good and when I sat down she told me she loved me. It was amazing. She spoke to all of us and even gave my dad a kiss. After all of that she was exhausted and went back to bed. All three of her sisters have traveled to see her and I think that their presence has made a big difference. Each time she sees one for the first time and realizes that they are there she breaks with emotion and then is tuckered out. We are loving the moments where she is mentally present and they seem to be coming more frequently. Her liver function levels are now around 360 and the other one is much lower also. She is still very sick and it is still going to be a long road to recovery, but at least now we have the hope of her being well again. Thanks again everyone for all of your concern. We love you all!
