Decadron seems to have helped Mom regain a bit of focus and vigor. This was most evident in her actions today: she bounded off the couch without help-- not just once, but three times. Normally, Mom needs a lot of help just to stand; this may have to do with a loss of both strength and balance. With the current reduction in brain swelling, she seems to be regaining some motor function. Along with sitting with two sets of guests today, Mom took a walk around the back yard and helped Dad pick some flowers. In all, it was a very good day for Mom.
