I feel like every time someone asks me how Jack is doing, my answer is the same. He is getting better every day. Don't get me wrong and think that I am insincere by not having any more to say. It is really really hard. I have compared our time at home to bringing home a new baby. You know it is going to be tough but there is no way to know how tough until you actually experience it.
The really great part is that over the last 2 weeks just when I think Jack is starting to get really down about things, someone will do something to encourage him. For example, the amazing folks over at the Weather Channel have been great at sending him encouraging messages. His sunday school class and class at school have been terrific about sending cards and gifts, and he has had several sweet friends stop by to play with him and keep him company.
This picture below is from a surprise visit we made to his class one day. He loved seeing his friends again.
I feel like there is light at the end of the tunnel. We will decrease our frequency of PT next week from twice a day to twice a week. He is supposed to attend a 1/2 day or 2 of school next week and he is getting more independent with taking care of himself and getting what he needs.
So thank you to all of you who have been praying for and with us. We still need your prayers for pain control and functional gains but please know that it really is getting better every day.
