YES is one of the handful words billy can say and we usually begin with YES and move along. last evening from out of nowhere OK snuck out! just as billy is getting down and depressed a word comes from out of the attic and by golly his mood swings positive. the rest is the same only different, still no talking but he is getting stronger and you can tell the mind is strong and sharp. he's a good guy and i am proud to call him my friend.
