Good News: Everett Moving Arms and Legs [David Stefanini]

One day after all of us heard how Kevin Everett is still in serious condition and how the likelyhood of him making a full recovery was slim, doctors are reporting today for the first time since the hit; Everett is moving his arm and legs.
Kevin Everett might walk again after all.

The doctor who performed the spinal surgery on Everett told Buffalo TV station WIVB on Tuesday that Everett has voluntary movement of his arms and legs and as a result he is optimistic that Everett will walk again.

Dr. Andrew Cappuccino told WIVB that Everett's sedation levels were lowered on Tuesday, allowing him to respond to verbal commands. WIVB also reported that Everett's latest MRI shows only a small amount of swelling on his spinal cord.
