Rick did so good today. In morning therapy he dressed in OT, he walked on the treadmill in PT, and he did pretty good in ST...turned his voice on a couple of times and his articulation is getting better and better. We had a visit at lunch time from Bubba Smith and Cotton Leathers. Rick was quick to give Bubba the loser sign! He was very glad to see them and smiled a lot and tried to visit while they were here. Riley went to town with Bubba and Cotton and came back with a new felt hat...Bubba told her she has to come to Dixon Creek and work it off...she said she'd gladly go, this week if he needed her. This afternoon Rick stood and stacked cones in PT, and made pudding in OT. It sounds crazy that making pudding would be a good OT activity, but it really was. He had to open the package of pudding and pour it in the bowl, pour the milk in the bowl and stir. He did really good, but it took him the entire 30 minute session to do it, and then Cade had to finish the stirring for the pudding to set. He played UNO in ST and did really good...cognitively he made the right plays, and Jeannie got him to voice what cards he was playing. On January 11th he will go for a scope with an ENT to check out the vocal chords and see if there is any other reason he is having so much trouble getting his voice on. Dr. Wolcott said today that we will move to TLC in a week to 10 days.
He called you to share in his glory in Christ, a glory that will continue forever. 1 Peter 5:10
