As I've mentioned, Amy says a lot of nonsense right now. She's pretty convinced that we have two more kids, Ellie and Luís (and sometimes Lisa and others). At first when she spoke like this we didn't know how to react. Can one laugh at someone whose brilliant mind is now splintered and in disarray? Interestingly enough, the people who knew Amy well have all said, "Amy would have wanted you to laugh." So we talked about it as a family and decided, "Go ahead and laugh. She would have wanted us to laugh." I think this kind of freaked out a visitor we had yesterday, as if Amy's children were being disrespectful to her (I actually wasn't there but the kids told me later) but it aligns with what we think her wishes would be. The kids wisely came up with the plan to be less cheeky when guests are present.
Last night Amy slept pretty well, and she's eaten well today, though I've noticed that she is having more difficulty swallowing. She has lost 10 kg (22 pounds) in the last 20 days, so we are trying hard to get to her eat more, especially now while she doesn't have so much headache and nausea as before. We've stopped asking if she wants peanut butter on her apples. We just add it on to boost the calories.
