Friday March 10

Lots of work on getting G to try to control his clonus (spasticity), not only when he flexes his foot but when his muscles start getting tired. It seemed a little better today. He worked on shifting his balance from one leg to the other and on keeping his left leg straight. It wants to pull in toward his right leg. The left leg also wants to buckle. G and his PT figured out yesterday that his quads and his hamstrings are working against each other, both activating at the same time, so they will be working on that next week. 

His finger movements are getting better each day, and he’s got some fine motor dexterity coming too. 

Pain wise today has been a 4-7, and it seems to be creeping down slowly. It’s mostly in his neck and shoulders still.
