Hurray!

Mindy has been moved out of the Neuro ICU. She is still receiving excellent, high level care, but she has graduated from intensive care. Today she was able to eat real food and she was quite talkative and seemed to be in good spirits.

She is still being treated for pneumonia and is on oxygen, but she is gaining strength. She will continue to receive speech and physical therapy.

We are all really excited about this progress. Way to go, Mindy!

AWESOME!!! I'm soo happy you are improving so quickly! There is a music therapy technique called melodic intonation therapy that has been successful with stroke related speech issues. Let know how I can help.
