11/27 Update

Well Alison's had an alright day today. She had a couple good therapy sessions, and she received a custom pair of modified shoes from an orthopedic company. They were her shoes but modified to accommodate her right ankle that has yet to come to a neutral, natural resting position. These shoes will allow her to more safely and comfortably bear weight through her legs when standing. In the next couple of weeks, we'll be getting a demo standing frame brought in for her to try. It'll be the same kind we have at the apartment, but it will have all the extra support pieces that ours currently lacks. This demo unit and trial run will tell us what Alison will need for our stander when she comes home. It'll also train us on how to safely use it with her. But it seems to have been an alright day though. Thanks for the continued support.
