Rebecca is improving on a new antibiotic and was well enough to be discharged from hospital. She is resting at home, trying to eat some solid food and get her strength back. Assuming she continues to improve, we are hoping she can resume her semester at King’s College in about two weeks. But no way are we sending her back to London until she is completely better!

 

Sasha is also much improved -for five days, none of the involuntary talking to himself that has been such a predominant symptom of this entire 5-month relapse. He Is showing interest in texting his friends, and starting to talk about things he wants to do when he gets out. Doctors are weaning him slowly off medications but already he is getting no iv drugs, so we de-accessed his iv port today. Doctors are suggesting a pass for coming home for a few hours some time next week. Don’t want to be superstitious, but am finding it hard to write about because it seems too encouraging…
