Pat was conscious now, recognized her daughters, was aware of her condition and her surroundings. She had her appetites, her desires, her personality, but she was paralyzed on the right side, and, more gravely, she could no longer express her thoughts and feelings in words; she could only eye and mime, point or gesture. Her understanding of speech, too, was much impaired. She was, in short, aphasic. March 4: While I was running this morning with the dog, I noticed that the bushes looked different. Every leaf seemed to stand out in its own little 3-D space. The leaves didnt just overlap with each other as I used to see them. I could see the SPACE between the leaves. The same is true for twigs on trees, pebbles on the road, stones in a stone wall. Everything has more texture. A CALL WENT out over the public address system.Prayer service ten thirty a.m. Everyone at the hospital was invited to attend. As far as Im concerned, she could leave tomorrow, Dr. Najjar replied. The steroids could be taken orally. She could return to the hospital for plasma exchange, and the IVIG treatment, if the insurance company approved it, could be done with a nurse at home. With all these treatments I believe that its likely Susannah will get back to 90 percent.
