Today was similar as to yesterday but with better answers from Eric. We were outside, and I had the dogs with me too. I asked if he remembered our dogs, and Eric gave me thumbs up for a yes. I asked the question I’ve been waiting for since the day of the accident; “Do you know who I am?” He gave me thumbs up. “Do you know we’re married?” Thumbs up again. I haven’t heard his voice for 49 days, so for 49 days I’ve been waiting for him to say I love you. I asked him; “Do you love me?”, and Eric gave me thumbs up. I don’t think I have to tell you how hard it was to hold my tears back. I love you too I said, and kissed him.
Note to myself and to anyone visiting Eric; we shouldn’t talk about the accident, not yet. I asked if he knew he’d been in an accident and Eric got extremely upset. He’s not ready for that subject yet. He doesn’t seam to remember anything from yesterday and the day before so his short-term memory isn’t with us yet.
