Update

Recovery is coming along. Between therapy and zoning I feel like I'm making a good stride! The strength in my legs and abs is getting stronger every day! I feel like things are finally starting to heal at the level I want them to. Although there isn't any significant movements I feel it's only a matter of time.

Every week in therapy we are able to try new things. A couple weeks ago we tried crawling. Although my legs were cooperating I was able to balance and hold myself up. I have also been doing the tilt table nightly. Usually I just end up sleeping on though. Apparently my dad built into comfortable, I just can't seem to stay awake some nights. It must be a site for my parents to see me sleeping standing up. Jack also loves to climb and lay next to me on it. My occupational therapist has also worked up a splint. This helps my hand which is normally curled straight and out and I am able to push more through it. This will help my strength in my right arm much more.

Although I am coming close to my year mark, I feel like things are right on track! I look forward to the progress I am continuing to make each day! So watch out!
