My mother can speak (whisper) and can answer simple questions (adding 1 plus 1, the name of her husband, her brother, her grandchildren), but rambles and
says nonsensical things over and
over again. She cannot move her arms and one leg she can only move slightly (although it is improving). She is often not alert, but she has had two heart procedures in 5 days so I'm hoping she will become more alert. We still don't know whether she will be able to swallow.
