Taylor Update: 13 Weeks

Another week has gone by… wow, that was FAST!!!

A lot has changed over the past week! PENNIES dropping in the jar every day!

His balance is improving so much! His flexibility is improving… his leg strength… core strength… improving, improving… improving!! PENNY!!!

Jennifer and I are so excited about each day… we remain patient but determined, right along with Taylor. He helps keep us all motivated as he works past each milestone!

Today was interesting… shortly before heading out the door for therapy, we found out it was cancelled for the day. They had some issues at the facility and we hope they are resolved before tomorrow!

Unplanned days off can be a struggle… plus we hate to miss therapy time, but hey, sometimes things just happen and you have to roll with it. Good thing Samantha was still here though – they spent a lot of time together – going on walks, eating, oh, and napping LOL

We all had dinner together before sending Sam back off to school – Nan took a great photo of the two of them ❤️

I measure a lot of things relating to Taylor’s vision – we do exercises on our own, as well as therapy… After a few days of not measuring Taylor’s recognition of movement, today we measured again. Last week he was able to recognize movement out about 10-15 feet. Today… he was seeing cars drive down the road… about 100 FEET AWAY!!! He can’t see the ‘car’… just movement, but that’s OK, it’s all moving in the right direction!

He can’t see objects… yet! I believe in my heart it will happen!

I forgot to include a great clip of him yesterday – doing pushups… so, I included it today 🙂

13 Weeks. 13 weeks of us walking away from the darkness… we will never be far enough away from it, but, each day moves in the right direction.

I hope your day was great and that tomorrow will be even better! If it doesn’t go quite as planned… just roll with it and make the most out of every opportunity… no matter how small it is!

Until tomorrow… Miracles Happen!  WE LOVE YA’LL!!!

October 2nd, 2018 – Work For It

From My Facebook Post:

Taylor Update: Work for it

Taylor had a great day! He is working so hard and had another day of PT today!

The great therapy team is working hard on his core and hamstrings… they are critical for his balance. He wants it back to normal, and he is working hard to get it back to 100%!

Watching the videos today just have me filled with so much pride! He just goes and goes… no complaints, but with a smile… and usually a joke or two 🙂

Taylor, keep working for it! You deserve all the success you are experiencing! You earn every bit of it. Not just with hard work, but with respect, love and kindness… the entire journey!

So many people are cheering Taylor on to the finish line! I can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings, I know it WILL BE AWESOME!!!❤️

I hope your day was awesome too! Remember, if you want something, you have to work for it! It may not be easy, and you may not see results right away… but if you pay attention to the little things, they add up, and when the time is right, and you’ve collected enough Pennies, you will see the success that you have worked hard to achieve!

Please PLEASE keep Taylor in your thoughts, love and prayers! Jennifer and I are so hopeful and determined! The road is still very long… but our tank REMAIN full!!!!

Until tomorrow… Miracles Happen!  WE LOVE YA’LL!!!

October 1st, 2018 – Connect 4

From My Facebook Post:

Taylor Update: Connect 4

Taylor had a great night’s rest… he hit the ground running today and the restful weekend was put to work 🙂

T had so many different workouts in PT today, I included a lot of them in the video because he was just working so hard! He did great! I could see the determination in his eyes!!

In addition to the hard work in exercises that he put in, he also had some very good vision therapies!

I’m just so glad he had a chance to rest well this weekend! He sure started the week right!

A short update today but I hope you had a great start to your work week!!

Until tomorrow… Miracles Happen!  WE LOVE YA’LL!!!
