Taylor Update: Run Forrest

Taylor had a full day today… and a LOT of PT!

They worked on core strength and balance techniques – this is great and will help him be more comfortable walking!

Tomorrow he gets to meet with another drowning survivor. She is a little older than him but had a very similar experience, unfortunately her recovery has not been as fast, but still, very encouraging for her that even after a year, she still sees improvements from therapy sessions.

I may have talked about her before – he did meet with her once before. It has become sort of an immediate bond that they have… remarkable individuals… both humble and kind… both determined. I really look forward to hearing his recap of their conversation! ❤️

After a lot of good hard work today, T was pretty fatigue but did NOT pass up an opportunity to spend time in the pool!

I’m not going to lie… the entire time is so stressful. He went under water this time… not for long, but it still took our breathe away. Despite our anxiety and precautions, he didn’t seem bothered at all. He has always enjoyed the water… I’m very happy for him that he is doing so well and isn’t held back by any fears. I honestly am… but it is VERY hard for us. It will take a while… for sure.

During the time in the pool, we bickered back and forth about what he could and couldn’t do 🙂 … but we also enjoyed watching him smile and swim – I loved how he was keeping Jennifer in good spirits by goofing around. We love you Taylor. I know this is hard for you and we will never fully understand how you are affected by all the aftermath of your accident… but please try to remember that we also have ‘aftermath’ from your accident. They are different, but both important. Please be patient with us as we learn to adjust.❤️

The weekend is right around the corner!! FOOTBALL!!!

We are looking forward to a restful weekend and enjoying some time time cheering on our favorite teams! We will be following along to the Gilbert Indians Football and tuned into watch our South Carolina Gamecocks!

We hope your weekend is awesome!!! Make sure you rest and prepare for the hard week ahead, and don’t forget to celebrate all the great things in your lives!!!
