I visited Fran Saturday and we had a nice visit. Her speech has improved so much. I got there in time to help a little with her lunch. They are giving her puree foods so I handed her a bowl of applesauce and a spoon and she fed herself and ate every bite. I held her plate and she ate some mashed potatoes, green peas, and pork chop. All of it looked like baby food but she said it was good. After lunch she and I talked about the goats. She misses sitting on her porch and watching them. Talked about finding her a good looking doctor to bring home. She says there aren't any good looking ones there. Talked about her family, my family, weather, Thanksgiving which we think she will be home in time to celebrate. Then she got tired. I helped her get comfortable and right when she started to doze off she opened her eyes and told me she didn't want to die. I looked in her beautiful eyes and told her she wasn't dying. That she could go to sleep and would wake up. She slept like a baby. My heart breaks for her as her mind starts running in different directions and she gets scared or confused. As long as someone is there to talk to her she calms down and her mind clears. I wish I could spend more time with her but being a hour from here by the time I feed and milk and visit her for a while its time to come home and feed and milk again. When she gets home I have promised her I will spend lots of time with her. She is still getting cards and said to make sure I tell everyone thank you for her. She says you all are very sweet and write such very sweet things to her. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. She is one special lady.
