Today was another good day for Satomi.  She slept well and woke early; 5:30am according to her Mom.  I fed her juice, a partial cup of apple sauce and another partial cup of strawberry yogurt, and about 4 ounces of water.  I thought she was eating too much but I took my chances.  I delayed administering her morning medication until the food had a chance to settle.

Most of the morning she sat awake.  She was lucid and spoke a bit.  It was still partially clouded but was better than other days.  She slept until the hospice aide, Rosa, and our RN, Mary Ann, arrived before lunch.

The news was mostly positive and all were happy that her night-time medication levels.  There are still signs of progression and we were warned to be diligent but it is obvious that today is a good day and it should be enjoyed by all.  With that in mind, we called a person from her “visitor queue”.  It turned out to be a nice lunchtime visit.  We are lucky that her visitor only worked 15 minutes away and could respond quickly.

This afternoon was similar.  Another of our friends arrived with pictures in hand and there were several big smiles.  I’ll pose some of these later.  The afternoon ended with a long nap.
