Good news keeps on coming. I contacted Lavannah's parents and they seem quite happy to believe you and I can help her. In fact I think at this point they'd try anything. They say if we can prove she's coherent, they're more than willing to take her out of the hospital. They want to have regular contact with her to see her progress, however, which is perfectly understandable and in fact encouraged. We could meet there with them sometime soon and show that she can understand things when they're written down. Prove it's just that she can't hear.
