Well Jessica was talking to her dad yesterday and her dad was on the phone with her in Shirley’s room (which you are not supposed to do). But, her mom apparently heard him talking to her and reached for the phone! WHAT! Yes she reached for the phone so Jessica started talking to her and Shirley started to mouth all sorts of things and this made Jessica so happy. Also today they are putting in a new trach tube and it is going to help her out by allowing her dad to place his finger on her throat and she can talk through her mouth but very raspy. This is going to be huge! We are so thankfull.
