Today has continued to bring good news. 

Anthea has been communicating more (the tracheotomy means she can’t speak aloud yet), her vison is clear and she clearly is understanding better what has happened and what is going on.  On a physical level, she has moved all her limbs and they’ve taken away the ventilator.  Now she’s breathing on her own, she should be able to speak soon. The staff hope to help her sit up to forty degrees and maybe transfer her out of intensive care in the next 24 hours.

Everyone is understandably upbeat and hoping these steps forward will continue.
