Victor continues to get stronger and stronger. He is trying to speak now. His voice is very soft and most of his words are not easily recognizable. This distresses him and may be the reason he is reluctant to speak, but we encourage him and are happy that he tries.
His appetite is returning, however he is still on swallow alert. He needs to eat more in order to get stronger. The other night he said "Burger King" (we think) and was treated to a hamburger from Burger King.
His morning and afternoon therapies are going great. They keep him busy with a variety of exercises to keep him interested. The therapists and nurses encouraged him to walk more to strengthen his legs and improve his balance.
