WRIST EXTENSION!

We've been waiting for this day since the night of the accident...NEW MOVEMENT OF ANY KIND! 
Jacoby has regained some wrist extension in her left arm....excuse our excitement, but THIS IS HUGE!!!  So far, it's just one new muscle firing, but WE'LL TAKE IT....

Jacoby has been spending a great amount of time reading on her kindle fire and has pretty much mastered it's touchscreen.  So much so, that we decided to upgrade her cell phone to an i-phone.  Talk about one excited girl!  Little smaller screen, but she is figuring it out as well.

Thanks again to all of you that continue to lift her recovery in prayer and for continued encouragement.

PS...PRAISE THE LORD!

  5. Had been coming back every few days to see if there was an update. Came back tonight (or this morning) to find TWO AMAZING updates! This is such great news. So glad the trip went well and that she did well in her first plane ride since the accident. And this news about the wrist extsion?! It's AMAZING! Any muscles starting to come back is super good; it's these small steps that lead to the big ones. Keep up the great work. Must be super hard, but it's paying off! You're in my prayers every night, from Montréal (Canada). Stay strong, Jacoby!

  6. Congrats to Jacoby on the new wrist movement! :D I'm sure it's one of MANY improvements to come, thanks to three different factors all working in her favor: (1) physical therapy, (2) the body's own regenerative abilities, and (3) the stem cell transplant. Awesome!!!

  8. Great news! If you get that strong enough you can carry things by looping them over the wrist and holding your hand back. Keep working it!
