Well Alison and I have had a really nice Saturday together. This morning we played on the computer a bit and she was doing really well spelling things. I was wearing a Chicago Bears shirt and she wrote "Dabears." That was pretty funny. Then a bit later in the day I just happened to ask if she had any movement in her left arm by any chance and she lifted her left toe for yes. So I started bending at her elbow and asking if that was it and she said no (toe down). Then at her shoulder, still no. So I was thinking what else could it be, then I saw her moving her fingers! She is now able to move her thumb, index and pinky fingers on her left hand!! That's pretty incredible!! I jokingly asked her how long she was going to wait before telling us that. And I asked her if there was anything else we should know about and she said no. But that's still great news! Tonight we've been catching up on season 2 of Downton Abby. But she and our dog, Piper, are sleeping well. Scratch that. Alison's now giggling. Now it's a proper slumber party. Thanks for your continued support.
