We made great progress today! Jonathan did pretty well in his therapy today, but he seemed to be more agitated with it. Typically we have a 30 minute break between each therapy, but this week we are having 3 therapy sessions back to back. I don't know if this has anything to do with it or not. We worked a little on using a new walker today. I think we will be working with it more tomorrow. Jonathan did Snack Attack this afternoon. He went to this without me, which was probably harder on me than it was on him. He did a wonderful job. He was with 2 other boys around his age and 2 therapists. He was in there for 45 minutes and did great. He even made me some pudding too! One of the therapist asked if he did a lot of classes at church. When I told her yes, she said it showed because Jonathan was introducing himself to the other boys and talking to them a lot. Praise the Lord! What a blessing! Because he did so well with this, they are going to put him in more group activities. He has an OT group tomorrow from 2-3 pm, so you can be in prayer for that. He will also get to go on an outing on Thursday to visit a fire station, which will be our first outing with a group. Please begin to pray now that this will be a good experience for him as well.
Please continue to pray for Jonathan's agitation during therapy. This can be a very difficult thing for everyone when he starts crying before he even starts his therapy. Pray for endurance, not only for the physical therapy, but also that he will be able to tolerate longer periods of therapy at a time. Pray for his group activities and his outings that are coming up. Pray for continued good health, continued strength and continued healing. Please pray for health, strength and rest for us. Thank you so much for your constant intercession for our family. We are blessed to have so many of you praying for us. We pray God's richest blessings on all of you for your faithfulness to pray.
