'Like a Cougar"
This is how my friend describes her daughter's fight and progress.
Today is Thursday. On Tuesday she was off the ventilator and onto a cpap machine. She would squeeze her mother's hand on request, wiggle her toes for the doctor and chew ice chips. Yesterday she was on nasal oxygen, speaking single words and had opened one eye halfway. She said "Hi," to her Mom.
Today she is up in a chair, eating and talking a mile a minute. I can't even begin to imagine how her mother is feeling right now.
But this progress for this lovely young woman is making ME cry.
