Stephen is improving daily

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world, or that it soon will be...hugs
When Stephen is further along the road to recovery then I may be able to start blogging again. For obvious reasons I haven't set foot in my craftroom this week!
I am so happy to report that already Stephen is eating without help. The food is all mushy but yesterday he was spooning it into his mouth like he was starving :o) He still can't talk but he unsderstands the written word so we are writing things down for him. His right side is still paralysed but he is using his left very well.
I can't visit him today but daughter Susan is taking in a tablet with photographs of his fishing team to try stimulating his brain.
I have bought him a portable DVD player and will be taking it in tomorrow along with his favourite trilogy, Lord of the Rings, so he can watch it for the 210th time :o) 
Love to you all
Jackie xx

Hi Jackie
Thank you for the update about your son, I was wondering how he was. It sounds like he is making good progress and it is good that he is able to feed himself. I hope he continues to make a good recovery.
Take care of yourself, it must be a worrying time for you and your family.
Sending you hugs

Good news Jackie that your son is able to feed himself and understands written words. Unfortunately it will take a while for his recovery, sending hugs to you all.
