Bil Speaks for Himself

It was something to see.

I would almost call it a miracle.

Bil knew that someone was coming to my mother in law's house to access her physical condition.  Normally, if a stranger had come to the house, he would have hid in his room.

Not this time.

Bill sat on a chair, near the recliner my mother in law uses, as the person interviewed my mother in law.

At one point she denied having fallen for almost a year, and Bil immediately corrected her, listing times she had fallen, and one time she had tripped.  He named dates and places.

He left at one point, but came back a few minutes later.

He stayed there for almost the entire time.

My theory is, he is deeply concerned for his mother in law, and sensed this person was there to help.  He still wasn't able to articulate his thoughts, but the fact that he stayed, and the fact that he wouldn't let his mother lie, I think spoke for herself.

Good for him.

If only we could wave a magic wand and give him typical abilities to interact with people.  What might we see?

But last week, Bil spoke for himself.  And I was so proud.
