We got the twitch!! That just means that the paralytic has worn off. We hadn't been able to get the twitch in her hand and it was way past time to see it. They finally tried a different nerve stimulator and we got the twitch. It's a little thing but we'll take it! She is still coming out of the coma sleep (sorry I can't use the fancy terminology) so it will still be a while before she moves on her own. That was some powerful drug they had to use.
We do so appreciate the emails and blog comments. They do strengthen us. But if you think we may not know you, please tell us who you are; high school friend, debater from ___, friend of so and so, etc. It just helps us appreciate the influence Shannon has had.
