During the night, I heard quite a bit of movement. There was head shaking and the sound of toenails crisscrossing the floor. When I awoke, I expected to see Bella's blanket all messed up and a torn stuffed animal, but the room as as neat as ever, and Bella was curled on her bed.
Yesterday, overly optimistic, I let a friend accompany us on our walk, a bit behind me. It made Bella nervous for an hour afterwards. Later the trainer, Karolin, reminded me that Bella isn't ready to meet anyone new yet. So I am attempting to balance my patience and excitement, as I watch the meds take affect. Dr. Sarah is staying in touch, and the three of us, Bella's team, are watching her slow emergence from the catatonia of shut-down.
