Taylor Update: 7 Weeks

Another good night’s rest! We are getting spoiled… and Jennifer and I love it! 😊

It’s been 7 weeks since Taylor drowned. As I count the days and weeks, I am also counting the progress he makes. IT HAS ONLY BEEN 7 WEEKS!!! If you remember from earlier, a doctor told us they do not measure someone’s recovery until 6 months after the incident… we are not even 1/3 of the way there!! That makes me so excited about tomorrow and each day after!!! KEEP ROCKING IT TAYLOR!!!

Tons of fun stuff today!

Walking up steps… WHAT?!?! HOW COOL! PENNY!!!

Some puppy loving during Pet therapy! Taylor loves this and it makes us all so happy to see him happy! I wish we had Pet Therapy every day 😊

The team here is so incredible, I am impressed every day with the collaborative approach they take and how successful their plan has been for T. Their attitude and excitement toward his rehabilitation is incredibly helpful!

After 7 weeks, our determination has not wavered… our hope has not faltered… and T’s determination has been strong and steady! We are ready for the long road ahead, we hope you are too, we need you, not just today, or this week, but each step of the way!

Your comments, love, positive thoughts, prayers, encouragement… they go VERY far for us Dorward’s… and we can’t thank you enough! ❤️

Taylor’s peg site and trach site are both healing nicely and his comfort level just keeps rising!

I hope your week is going great and you are full of determination too!

Until tomorrow… WE LOVE YA’LL!!!
