Blog 2

I used to be able to type about 100 words per minute with a zero percent error rate. I say that to let those who don't actually know me understand that I am something of a perfectionist, not arrogant. The contraption I now use to “type” is made from PVC pipes and some other items I can't recognize. It was artfully crafted by the kind souls at Be Extraordinary. I honestly can't say how many incarnations of this switch there have been. Early on, I could only move my left foot. Then movement returned to my left thumb. All this at less than a snail's pace, mind you. Next, my left pinky. I guess that it would be appropriate if I thank Dr. Susan Fager and Suzie Wiley. Back to the pinky. Once I had two options, all that was history. Now let's not discuss speed or errors.

Hey Alison, you were an extraordinary "perfectionist" in your day--by design. I think you've earned the right to let a few slide! I love seeing your progress, admire your perseverance, and wish you all the best. Rock on!

I love that you are blogging. The video was a nice touch because I was curious as to how you managed the typing. Thanks for sharing. 100 wpm! Holy cow! I had no idea you had ever typed that fast. I'm sure the slowness of the current process is frustrating. But, it is so great to read your words.

Dear Ali, I am in awe, again, of your perseverance, optimism, and determination. What an inspiration you are to me! I thank God for your life and your desire to continue living. I'm also so thankful that God knew exactly who you would need to see you through this - thanks, Chris, for loving our precious Ali and for living out your wedding vows each day. Our whole family is blessed to have you as part of it. Sending both of you lots of love wrapped in shiny foil paper! Love, Tiff, Aaron, and boys
