     My mom has a peg tube for the last 3 months, and hasn't been speaking at all. This morning I heard her yell my name 4X, I woke up, and thought I was dreaming, I said "mom?" She then replied "I want to watch TV, wake up!!! what are u doing?" It was like a breath of fresh air! I couldn't believe it, she only talked for 2 hours and went back to being silent. Hopefully she talks again tomorrow.
