I got another pretty good update on Alison from Lincoln today. She probably didn't have quite as good of a day as yesterday, but still a pretty good day overall. She was a little more tired today - probably from all of her activity yesterday. But it's good she rested up today because tomorrow will be another big day. In the morning, she'll go to her first assistive technology clinic down in the research lab. This should be a good opportunity for her to get more exposure to the assitive technology options that are available for communicating until she can talk again (which I'm optimistic she will). It'll be interesting to hear how it goes, and she will likely be attending this clinic every week going forward. She's certainly trying hard to figure things out - it just takes a good amount of time for the brain to make new connections - but it's all in the works. And like I said before, it's a marathon, not a sprint. And we're in it for the long-haul. Thanks for all of your continued support.
