My mother-in law is actually doing much better. I don't know where you are located, but, we are outside of St. Louis. We were able to get her into a program at Barnes Hospital in their Stroke and Brain Injury Rehabilitation dept. It has done wonders. She first had a couple of 2 hour evaluations, then has had therepy (both physical and mental) each week for a couple of hours. She also was sent from there to see a "neuro-psychiatrist" to evaluate her mental status. She had fallen below 100 pounds, but her weight is up. She is not "her old self", but it seems a miracle how far she has come.
So, I do believe there is real hope if you can find the correct people. We were really fortnuate. Please let me know if you need any more info.
