Dianne is clear-headed, breathing well, drained of excess fluids (almost) and eager to come home tomorrow. Today has been a very good day for her, with everything pointing to recovery. Three days in the hospital have been of great benefit today. She walked today with the help of a physical therapist, said she couldn't believe how well and far--better than she has in a very long time. She said she felt like she was skating.
Later i watched an episode of The Bridge. My hero, Sonia, was in great autistic form, suffering, and being socially awkward and using almost miraculous powers of focus and deduction to locate a (unfortunately dead?) person, The show portrayed what i have experienced, the ability to turn social awkwardness and lack of common sense into the appearance of grace under fire. Since every situation is a crisis situation for an autistic person, we have plenty of practice for the real (as defined by neurotypical people) crises.
