Hands Up

Rebekah has been faithfully doing her exercises each day. Usually she gets them done 3 times a day but some days only twice. At times she get discouraged that it isn't improving as quickly as she would like. Other days she is jumping up and down because she can bend her index finger, even if only a little bit. She is becoming less self conscious about her wounds and now goes around in short sleeves without a second thought. She always puts sunscreen on her grafts so as not to sunburn. You can see she still has some puffiness on the back of her hand.

Index finger straightened as much as she can actively, I can straighten it a bit more passively.

Index finger flexed as much as she can actively, I can bend it a bit more passively.

Middle finger bends quite well. The tip of the finger still droops a bit.
