By all reports (including her own) Mom had a great day today. She is seeming to regain her appetite and ate better than she has all week through out the day today. I think it helped that one of her special visitors today is an expert at getting her to eat. She also had a strong physical therapy session with lots of walking, and good long naps. The ability to rest often is crucial; I always see positive gains when she is able to sleep during the day.
Tonight some friends held an impromptu Shabbat celebration in the courtyard before dinner. Someone brought a guitar and everyone sang songs and offered blessings for peace and healing.
