This is truly the best day so far. Jenny keeps improving and getting stronger each day. As I did therapies with her today, I realized that Jenny could easily do all the movements needed to use a computer mouse. I put the mouse in her hand and off she went. Jenny cried tears of tremendous joy as she once again met another mile marker on her journey. It is my luck that just yesterday, I asked if I could unsubscribe her from all the e-groups that she was on because her e-mail box is always full of 100 e-mails or more. It surprised Jenny that she could move a mouse. If she can move a mouse, she can definately move a joy stick and control her own wheel chair.
We also went to the ENT today who changed Jenny to a smaller size trache. We also set a date to have the trache totally removed Monday!!! Jenny must meet the requirment of having it capped for 24 straight hours, but that is not a problem (he did make us promise not to try tonight, but we can do it tomarrow). Appearantly, it was an easy process of just taking out the tube and putting a peice of tape across the opening to close it up until it sealed on its own. He asked if we wanted our nurse to do it at home or if we wanted to come all the way to his office for a 5 minute procedure. Jenny opted for the office visit. That is alright, I was out of duct tape anyway. Jenny has officially decreed that she is getting better based on the events of the day. She has always been a hard worker and faithful, but she was pretty discouraged at her limited progress (based on the fact that she assumed she would be back to normal by now). After re-evaluating her situation, she is doing quite well in progressing. So, I assume Jenny will be able to read e-mails more often so her address is firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to send a private message. Otherwise, I try to read postings to her regularly from this web page. Now I am off to re-subscribe Jenny to all her e-groups again- and find some way to disable e-bay.
