Update on Melissa
Janice_78 posted:
I've copied John's post from another board.

My sis, Kathy, came in from CA last night. So Leslie, my sister-in-law and Melissa's brother, Brooks, took turns watching and caring for Melissa last night and this morning, so I was actually able to close my eyes for about 5 hours straight in bed while I held Melissa's hand and arm the whole time.
That was the most continuous rest I've had in 3 weeks. Can't say I slept the whole time but it was still recharging.
At about 4 am our time while I was listening to Melissa breathe--it actually sounded like she was saying my name--over and over, but all of a sudden it stopped.
I opened my eyes and looked for any signs of life.
It is very dark and I did not want to turn on a light since it hurts Melissa's blind eyes, and I could not see any while stirring from my own resting coma.
I immediately called for Brooks, who was in the great room not too far away. He came rushing in and put a hand to her heart. And he said, faint but still there.
Yes, she still is breathin'....
