Aunt Robyn's 9 Lives (an update)

I brought up my aunt's health last week. She'd been in the ICU, on a ventilator, with little hope of recovery. We've been through this before with her, and somehow she's beaten the odds and come home. This time, the doctors and nurses assured us, her organs were too weakened. Too battered down.

She's not out of the woods yet. But when I visited her today, her ventilator was removed, her tv was on, and she was talking and even singing at times.

The resilience of the human body amazes.
