That was the hope of the neurologist based on the preliminary scans, but so far the news from the MRIs haven’t been good. It looks like there was major damage to both the white matter and the grey matter in the brain. Plus major organ damage. And in the “almost a week” since she was born (full term) she hasn’t yet been able to breathe or swallow on her own. I suppose there is hope, but it seems to get dimmer by the day.
And, Velma, probably yes, best to detox under medical care (learned that this winter) - but you have to agree to go into rehab. And until you say “oh God, I have got to get help” it doesn’t do you any good. So people who care sit around being able to do nothing except hope you catch the clue bus before you kill yourself (or someone else). One of my sister’s friends entered rehab shortly after my sister left, and didn’t last long enough to finish detoxing before she was back in the bar.
