Today was a good day. We started our therapy earlier and had both PT and OT back to back. That typically doesn't work well for Jonathan, but he did a great job handling it today. He started out by sitting on the mat and balancing himself on his own. He threw some bean bag toys through a basketball hoop and did arm stretches during OT. Next in PT, he stood on the standing frame for most of the 30 minutes, but at the end, his therapist took him to the parallel bars and he took about 12-13 steps from one end of the bars to meet me at the other end. His therapist said he was doing better moving his legs today than he did earlier this week. It was so good to see him up and walking. The rest of the day we spent taking walks outside and just hanging out together. We are getting to enjoy lots of smiles and lots of words from Jonathan. Each one is such a blessing.
Continue to pray that Jonathan will be at peace in his mind and that he will not be afraid or worry when his Dad or Mom is not there. Pray that his short term memory will return. Pray that he will have a restful weekend so that we can tackle some new things next week. Continue to pray for complete healing of his brain, vision and diabetes. Pray for continued strength in his arms and legs and coordination in being able to sit and stand on his own and to walk. Pray that we will be able to find some rest this weekend as well. God continues to show Himself strong on our behalf. Thank you so much for all of your prayers. He is faithfully hearing and answering each day. Praise His Holy Name!
