Great Report

Well we had an appointment for Evan at the Children's Hospital. We haven't had a PT/OT appointment for a while and oh was it good to see our friends "Andewa" (Angela) and Tami. It was such a wonderful appointment and I am feeling so good right now! Evan is doing REALLY well and has even gotten a little stronger in his arms and torso. There were some moves that he started doing that I pointed out to them and some new moves that they pointed out to me. We developed some new therapy skills for me to use at home.

I just keep replaying their faces of excitement and joy as they watched Evan raise his arm higher than they have ever seen and hurl the solid ball farther than they have ever seen him throw.

I am feeling like all of our hard work is paying off. I am feeling like all of the difficult moments that Evan and I go through sometimes (painful stretching, difficult physical "encouragement") are all paying off. Most of all the pride that I am feeling for my little man is oozing from me!!! I just want everyone to know how absolutely amazing my dear sweet Evan is!

I can't even imagine how Monday is going to feel when we pick up his wheel chair and ........ cough assist machine. Yes folks you read that correctly. The long awaited arrival of two essential pieces of equipment are coming on Monday!!!!!!

How wonderful is our life??!!!
