What a Difference a Few Weeks Makes

Jack's accident was 2 weeks ago Saturday.  It's amazing the progress he has made.  He gains confidence daily. Giving him the courage to try new things and stretch his legs and move his body.  Getting out of the house for the first car ride proved to be quite dramatic with neighbors coming out to see what the commotion was and if they could help.  Now a car ride is the first thing on this mind and he manages to get into and out of his seat in the car with little or no help.  Today we decided to put him into a full bath and let him soak.  What therapy that was for him.  His leg floated and he was able to stretch and move it as he is supposed to every day to keep the muscles long and strong.

After a bath and a clean up he was my date to the SUU coaches luncheon to hear about the last football game and to see one of his heroes, Coach Ed Lamb.  Coach Lamb invited Jack to come and watch practice on Tuesday or Thursday and get pictures with the players.  He and Charlie will be over the moon!

Through this entire experience we have been so fortunate to have loads of people rally around us and offer help and support.  In the grand scheme of things it is such a minor speed bump on the road of life.  We know that.  That knowledge just makes the support of others that much more valuable.  It makes a difference to feel cared for and loved in a community we are relatively new to.  We are all on the road to wellness and Jack plans to try school on Wednesday.  Another first, another milestone.
