How My Mother Is Like Iraq

Both are making modest progress off a low base. The gains are fragile and could easily be reversed.

The above is a paraphrased assessment of Iraq made in The Economist a few weeks ago. I had read this shortly before visiting my Mother on Sunday. The same holds true for her.

Mom looked a little better yesterday. Her reaction time to questions can still be slow and she often gets the year wrong when asked. However progress is being made relative to both speech and physical therapy.  The base is low. She cannot get out of bed or stand on her own. However, she looks a little less like a starving refugee.

For now I can live with progress.
