Sorry such a late post tonight. Internet access is a little hard to come by at Kessler and we just got home. So, a quick update tonight. Neil can throw. Well, maybe it's kind of a toss, but he would pick up one of his little stuffed animals and toss it to us. When we threw it back into his lap, he would throw it again. If the fact that he did it over and over again indicates that he liked it, then I'd say he was enjoying himself. Honestly, it's hard to tell. He will actually smile very briefly with the right side of his face on command. But it's just like anything else he does (thumbs-up, handshake, hug, high five, etc.)--he just does what you ask him to do. It doesn't happen spontaneously. If I'm sounding a little negative tonight, it's probably just that I'm tired. His doctors and therapists are all very pleased with how he's doing. With all their experience, I think it's a good idea to trust their judgement!
P.S. No hip issues. Maybe his wriggling is just normal for someone with a TBI.
