In case you can't already tell, I don't reread what I wrote, this blog is a place I release all my thoughts from the day and lay my day to rest. It's the last thing I do before I shut my eyes at night, it's a release, it's therapeutic, it's my outlet... so I am so sorry for the sentences that might not make sense and for all the grammatical errors. Thank you all for taking the time to read and pray for us... we are so blessed by you all walking this journey with us.
With that said... let's move onto Adam's awesome day!!! Adam started his day pretty sleepy today, he didn't sleep well last night because he had an upset stomach that kept him awake. I think I mentioned last night that the antibiotic that Adam is on for his trach is causing his upset stomach. It seemed to get better as the day went on, but in the morning he reached down and was pointing at his stomach and when I asked if it was hurting he nodded yes. Today in physical therapy, Erin had Adam in the walking machine, Adam did awesome!!! He walked the farthest and fastest yet.... and guess what, his left side didn't need any assistance!!! He's so strong! He's amazing. He tracked really well with his eyes today, going to the right is difficult for him and he was doing really well initiating moving his eyes and head to the right!
In occupational therapy, Becky was out so Lori filled in. She brought Adam a ring toss game. He had to place the rings onto the pole. He did awesome!!! He reached up and grabbed the ring from Lori's hand, then he stretched his arm forward to put the ring on the pole and he let go!!! It was so funny, after about 3 he let out the biggest sigh because he was working so hard to concentrate! GO ADAM!!!! Please be praying for Adam's time in speech therapy, I think he's bored and needing a really good challenge, because he just hasn't want to engage Stacie too much.
Adam's parents have been in town for the week and are heading back home tomorrow, so please pray for them, I know leaving is so very hard for them. Also pray for safe travels. Tonight was a good time, they took Mackenzie and I out to dinner, Jack and Cookie could not believe I had never had lobster so we had a lobster dinner, it was so fun... here are a few pictures from our evening.

Doesn't it look like he's saying "eat me"?
