I received a pretty good report from Alison's dad in Lincoln today. He said her mood was pretty good for most of the day, and as a result, her therapies were pretty successful. He specifically mentioned how well she was working with the assistive tech device to scan through letters on a keyboard by activating a switch with her chin. She seemed to be getting the hang of it. If she can really grasp that, and control her movements enough, she could eventually spell things and begin to communicate with us. But we've got a very limited amount of time left at Madonna, so that high level of assistive tech therapy is unfortunately drawing to an end. But the staff is working extra hard to do all they can to progress as much as possible before we have to leave. Of probably 15 long term care facilities in KC, it looks like only two may consider taking us in. And of those two, I've heard some bad things about one. So hopefully the other one - which would suffice - will confirm their ability to take us in. I'm hoping to know more tomorrow. In the meantime, I'm still following up on any others that seem suitable. Please continue to pray for wisdom and direction during these difficult decisions. And of course for Alison's recovery to continue. Thanks for your support.
