It's great to hear about your mom's improvement. I know it seems like only a little improvement but that's great news. My mom had the PEG tube placed in her probably 2 1/2 weeks after her stroke and it's much more comfortable for her. In fact a relative of ours is a doctor and recommended it even before my mom's doctor did. I don't think my mom realizes it's even there but I'm not sure because she cannot talk, but can respond with nods. I feel the more your mom is placed in a chair she respond better. Also, remember to move her legs and arms for her. Keep talking to her because she probably can hear you. My mom's sight has improved greatly, because she now follows movement in front of her and I know she couldn't do this before. Any little sign of improvement is great, don't get discouraged, even though I do alot. I have to keep focusing on the small improvements that my mom has made to date.
Let me know how your mom is doing.
