The YouTube link goes to a video of Bob opening and closing his hand with some finger movement. This shows progress of the eighth month after his stroke.  He attributes this after many repetitions.

Bob's last UT Study Testing was this past Thursday.  We hope it was helpful to the study.  It was also helpful to Bob in many ways.  Although it was many trips to Dallas and we are happy not to have to make that trip we will miss the people involved.  They are a great bunch of people and were a lot of help to both Bob and I.

Because of insurance purposes Bob is trying to get all three therapies (physical, OT, and Speech) all in one place and together.  I hope it all works out well.

Bob is making so much progress but it has been a long, long road.  If you look back to where he began the progress is amazing!

Below is Bob with his sister Rina and her Bob.  They visited for a few days and left on Tuesday morning.  This was the first visit to the DFW area for Bob and was Rina's second.  We spent a couple of days being tour guides especially in Ft. Worth. We always enjoy doing that.  The photo below is of Bob, Rina and Bob at Gas Monkey restaurant in Dallas.  Rina's Bob is big into cars and racing.

We have actually had company for the past three weeks and that is why I have not been posting.  To start out with my daughter Jane and her family were here. After that my sister and her daughter's family came to visit.

 It has been 2 1/2 weeks since Bob had his Botox injections. He has still been in a lot of pain and hasn't seen a lot of results.  We are hoping that after 12 weeks when he gets more injections that it will be more helpful,  The one positive thing is that he has been sleeping better.  He does wake up often but goes right back to sleep.  I think this is huge because he really needs the sleep.
