More good news

So Shannon is continuing to wake up and show more movement. They were just in here suctioning her out again. She moved her left arm up all the way to the mouth and touch the nurse that was suctioning her out. She also moved up her legs. Very good signs. I went up and was talking to her. I was asking her to squeeze my hand. She was moving her eyes to look at me. I was holding both hands and she moved her thumb on the right hand feeling around my hand. Then she lifted up her left hand and shift grips to more of a arm wrestling grip and gave me a good squeeze. It was exciting. I tried for a second squeeze, but she seemed to fall back to sleep.

I am taking over the night watch for a while to give my parents a few hours or so of sleep. It will be some good news to give them when they wake up.
