Lucy and I visited Monica on Wednesday and she is definitely making progress. When we got to her floor we found her in her chair placed near the nurses office. Apparently, Monica not only tries to take off her helmet, but she has been trying to stand up without assistance! I looked over at her whole the nurses were telling me this, and Monica had a mischievous look on her face. She seemed so happy to have Lucy on her lap, and they cuddled the entire time. Monica kept patting Lucy’s belly, and I acknowledged that yes, maybe Lucy is putting on a little weight. Monica is trying hard to communicate and it seems to me she really wants to talk. When it was time to go, I felt sad about taking Lucy away from her. I’ve attached a few pictures ~ note Monica’s beautiful manicure!
