Yup, less movement here, too, at 40+5. FWIW, my mom recalls that I moved way less at the very end. But I've been holding onto that hope for a week. Oh well; she's moving some, but not big rolling...

Sorry, but Grover will never NOT be a Muppet for me and for a lot of people! Oscar doesn't do it for me, either, but it's not such a strong association with Sesame Street. A good friend loved Oliver...
