Update on Marlene

I went to visit Marlene on Sunday. They have backed off on her medication so that her physical movements can be assessed. She still seemed "fuzzy" from the medication, but the priceless moment for me was when she saw me when I entered her room and smiled. She cannot communicate verbally because of the trach tube. I spent quite a bit of time with her and read her the cards sent to her through me and also read her the notes that she has received at the hospital and just talked to her in general about things that we have done together, pets, family, friends, etc.

Her condition still remains critical.
