Not a lot of updates on Emma’s progress recently so here we go.
Emma’s power in her arms and wrists has deteriorated severely over the last few weeks.
This we have seen coming for a little while, we have been helping her to eat for six months or so.
The biggest impact this is having is that she can no longer use the keyboard on her laptop: so her online presence on Bebo and MSN has been brought to a premature end.
She has already been assessed for alternative input tools such as an eye controlled system. This happened when she was last at Rachel House so I never got a chance to find out more.
More worryingly the muscles in her throat are starting to weaken so she has started to choke on her food occasionally.
