Mayuki seems to be getting better. Yesterday, she wasn’t at all lively when she woke up, but she quickly perked up, and by the end of the day she was more or less her old self. She refused to eat any of Yuriko’s udon at lunch time, but happily ate my spaghetti, while at dinner she didn’t want to eat anything solid. Maybe she just wasn’t impressed with what was on offer.
She also answered to her name, when called in Japanese. She put her hand up, and said “hai” (“yes”), and then smiled and applauded when we did. She really is right on the verge of starting to talk now.
