Jenny will most likey be in the hospital for a few more days. Jenny agrees with the delay and has some goals in mind to achieve prior to coming home. She is doing better today and began the day more relaxed until a horrible experience with a respiratory doctor whose lack of bedside manner and negative comments put Jenny into extreme emotional distress that she had painful body spasms that lasted a few hours and had to miss rehab in the afternoon. My stomach was in knots as I saw Jenny sweat and shake as she never has before. This guy’s behavior was more than accidental words or bringing up sensitive topics. He will no longer have contact with Jenny.
As for some good news, Jenny was moving her right arm in a way I never have seen before during some spasms. I could not get her to repeat the full arm movement, but she had definate control of her right thumb to the point of raising and lowering it on my direction (I have video as proof). All I know is that this is the same thumb that I use to control the remote, so her life is going to be pretty good. Seriously though, if this become stronger, it has solved our speaking board problem since the blinking sensors do not seem to work. A finger switch would be much more effective.
