Sorry it's taken me so long to post something today...we've had a big day. Rick had his therapy this morning for about 30 minutes, and this afternoon the therapist decided to sit him up. This is so good because when your body is in a sitting position it tells the brain that it should be awake, and really provides a great stimulus. The therapist has such a great personality and is such a positive person...she is great to be around. He was able to hold his head and neck up for the most part...he needed a little assistance at times. Then she began doing all the exercises on him. When she grabbed his shoulders to pull him forward at the waist, we began rubbing a very cold washcloth on his back and he opened both of his eyes really wide...the widest I've seen them open. He didn't focus on anything and didn't seem to be any more aware of his surroundings, but I just thought it was the greatest thing ever! She left him sitting up for about an hour. His aunts, uncles, brother and Glenn were here, and we didn't get more than a foot away from him, but he did good. This is the kind of therapy we can expect every day, and it's very important right now that he receives this type of stimulation. I'm so proud of him...how can I not be strong when I have him as my inspiration every day?
Riley decided to go to church camp at White River Youth Camp and will be there all week. Cade actually has strep throat, but we caught it early, got him on anitbiotics and he will be staying in Seymour for a few days.
Please pray for Rick's healing...I miss sitting on the back porch at Tongue River with him and the kids.
