After weeks of no response my lovely man actually spoke to me! Only a couple of words but he was looking at me and communicating. I had thought that I was never going to hear his voice again so it was like Christmas and New Year rolled into one several times over. He sat and held my hand for almost the three hours I was with him and to have that connection was truly wonderful. For once I left his room and the care home feeling good instead of holding back the tears. As I have said before I have been really struggling with the no response so you can imagine how much this has meant to me.
