5/18 Update

Alison keeps laughing at me - for no reason at all! (kidding, we're being really silly tonight - it's actually a lot fun.) She's been in a pretty good mood tonight and it was really good to see her. : ) We got a really encouraging report from her assistive tech doc. Here's an excerpt from an email she sent about yesterday's session. "She is working so hard. I was amazed at the changes she was showing me with regards to her mouth movements. We worked on her saying 'yeah' and 'no'. She could voice to 'yeah'. She also demonstrated lip rounding to indicate no. I felt it was distinct and I could read that well as a response mode." She went on to say that Alison continues to show progress every time she sees her. It was really good to read her note. We are certainly blessed to be somewhere with such resources available to us. She is still showing some signs of the UTI, but she still has about a week of meds, so hopefully they'll get it all this time. I'm looking forward to a nice weekend with my lovely wife. I asked her if she would like me to go pick out a new outfit for her to wear this weekend. She just laughed, as if to say, "Of course I want more clothes!" Thanks for your continued prayers and support.
