Saturday for a couple hours Hollis will be getting acupuncture.
Starting at 3:30, Hollis will not be accepting visitors until 6pm.
She is becoming more and more aware. She seems to be more present. Her eyes are opening together and wide when I walk in. Her noises are getting more expressive. She had been kicking her legs, especially her left one. The doctors have been using this table that they strap her to that slowly stands up, so she can get used to the feeling of gravity under her feet.
I think about how it seems like it is taking so long for her, and how things are still in such shambles of Hollis' former self. Then I think about how each week progress builds and builds and is just a very slow process. I think about the first time I saw her compared to the last time and there have been incredible steps taken. I must be patient and consistent. Breath and wait.
