4/22 Update

Alison and I had a pretty good day today. We went for a ride around the building this morning; saw some flowers, some butterflies, the saltwater fish tank, got some sunshine and fresh air. I think she enjoys getting out and about every now and then. This afternoon we just hung out and took it easy - a good ole' lazy Sunday. We shared a
few good laughs, worked on vocalizing a little and did some range of motion exercises. She was still posturing some, but her heart rate wasn't getting too high, so that's a sign they weren't as intense as they had been. I'm now back in KC, but I've talked with the overnight nurse, and Alison's had a shower this evening and was resting
peacefully afterwards. Her nurse sounded really nice, so that's comforting knowing that none of us are there with her in Lincoln right now. In the morning, Alison's boss and two coworkers will head up to spend the day with her. She's pretty excited to see them - as they are to see her. It should be a nice time and I'm eager to hear all about
tomorrow evening when they return to KC. Alison's brother, Jeff, and his wife, Erica, will head up Tuesday to stay until Thursday when I'll return that evening. It's so nice that she's been able to have loved ones with her almost this entire time. I'm hopeful we can continue that support. We'll have another review with the insurance on Tuesday
afternoon. We'll again be anxious to hear what they say - whether they grant us more time in LTACH, or if they say we need to move on. These last two weeks they granted sure went fast. I'd ask you continue to send prayers and positive thoughts that all would go in favor of whatever is most needed for Alison's continued recovery. Thanks again for all of your support.
