Okay...this is not what we wanted to hear...the nurse from Baylor did not come evaluate Rick because based on interviews with the therapist and nurse she feels that he is not ready. I'm a little disappointed that she didn't talk to me...afterall I'm with him 12 hours a day, and I see him do a lot more than anyone else around. Baylor says he needs to follow simple commands more consistently, and track with his eyes better. The tracking is just now coming around. They also suggested a neuro stimulant... a medication that stimulates the brain and helps wake it up. Hopefully, we will get this started and see even more progress than we've got. Today he wiggled his toes on command and tried to throw a ball during therapy. Kiran also said his neck control is 100%...no matter what position we put him in, he is able to control his head and neck. He also nodded his head "yes" today in response to a question. So, I still have a lot of positive things to be thankful for...Baylor will come in time.
We continue to recieve so much support that I'm astounded...every day someone else does something that amazes me...you're love for us is so great...I sometimes wonder how I will repay all of these acts of kindness. I know that's not what you want...repayment, but I promise if there is ever a time you are in need, we will be there for you. Thank you so much!
