Esther told us that Frank would move to Kalorama on Monday and Frank said he was nervous about it. About eating he said that things were improving 'astonishingly fast'. I was very happy to hear this. If Frank himself recognizes the progress he is making, this will surely help him fight on his difficult battle.
I was somewhat surprised today to see Frank smile. As the right side of his mouth smiled a big smile, the left side of his face remained passive. Only at that point did I realize that I had not seen him smile before. But today, he smiled a lot. Listening to some of his favourite music certainly improved his mood.
It wasn't all sunshine though: at one point Frank seemed to be convinced that Mathieu was visiting him, when he was in fact not there. Out of no where, he said 'Hi Mathieu' and when I asked him why, he stated firmly 'Mathieu is here'. As I explained to Frank that Mathieu was not present, he said he wanted to talk him but gave no further explanation about why he'd thought Mathieu was in the room. He drifted off at this point so I could not question him further on the matter.
Frank also complained of hiccups, feeling a bit ill, and not liking the liquid food. But all in all, he was in a good mood today. He also remembered where the Xena dvd's were, so hopefully we'll be able to find them in his Tardi-..ehhmm, his library now.
