Dakin loves butterflies (especially purple ones). He and his night nurse frequently discuss them, and she has evidently showed him how they fly. So the other night I asked him if he would flap his wings like a butterfly, and he did so! He has made this movement quite a bit lately, and we're pretty happy about it because he seems to be moving his right arm a lot more than he has been the last 6 months or so--this last summer he pretty much quit using it. We're hoping he's coming out of that. He doesn't really have too much strength in his hands, though, so that's why he's letting them hang.
Oh, and sorry about the background noise--night nurse was vaccuuming Dakin's room. I didn't think the noise would show up!!
