I can't believe how long it has been since my last update. Time is flying by so I thought that it was about time. Our march to normalcy continues. I've updated some photos in the Photo section of some of Shannon activities (at least the ones that I remember a camera). It includes a rare sight of Shannon in her manual chair (amazing what you can buy on Ebay). Kirin loves pushing her around. Last weekend was Kevin's graduation in Cub Scouts. We decided to camp. It was quite a bit of work, but we pulled it off. Just an overnighter at Lake Lopez, but a good first shot at camping.
As you can guess, there are good days, and some not so good days. Shannon has gained full motion in her right arm and has a tiny bit of tricep in her left. Alas, no additional use of the hands though (she would really like them to work). Basically the line where she can feel has lowered about an inch or so. That means that she can now feel her armpits. Not the radical change she was hoping for , but still a little progress. She continues to build strength and work with the muscles she has.
