    :'( Here’s hoping she will come through.
  • Doesn't sound too hopeful though.

    There some weird people flagging someone for clearing the ridiculous draft folder issue.

    Small update. She's been able to take some aided steps but still unable to talk.

    Fingers crossed for any and all recovery.

    Progress but it sounds really bad. The road to some semblance of recovery is going to be very long.

    Update:
    For Amy, the sense of day and time is difficult. When we tell her that she has turned 32 years old (June 1 was her birthday), she looks at us surprised and in disbelief. She still can’t talk, which doesn’t make it easy to explain something to each other. Her memory is short, very short. It is intensive and sometimes painful to realize that what Amy sees, experiences and experiences, is only short-lived.

    From Amy’s point of view, that may be her luck, not consciously realizing and knowing what happened to her.

    She listens carefully when we tell her what happened. Then when we come back to this later in the day, she doesn’t know what it’s about. Amy doesn’t seem to realize what she’s missing and can’t do anymore. The amazement she then shows us is tough for us. She herself lives uninhibitedly in the present. Amy also struggles to realize where she is, where to go or which direction to choose.

    She is currently at the Daan Theeuwes Center, but the situation is dire for the Pieters family: Because she has made such great strides in her physical rehabilitation, she won’t be eligible to stay in the Center for much longer. Physically, she’s doing well, but cannot live independently and is still struggling to speak and communicate.

    The family is now looking for an assisted living facility that can continue working with her and hopefully help her to eventually live independently, but as the family notes, it’s impossible to tell if or when any more progress will be made. But as they wrote in the update, "We do not give up hope, as long as there is progress, Amy can still surprise us."
