Taylor Update: Working Out

Another good night sleep… and no hallucinations for several days in a row! PENNY! We are VERY hopeful that that time is behind us, and I know Taylor is too! His brain just keeps healing more and more!!!

Taylor kicked butt today! He was bragging nonstop when I got to his room right before dinner. I love that he is so proud of himself!! He is quick to show off how strong and steady he is… and we love seeing it!

We continue to see small improvements in his vision – he feels unimpressed by them, but we are VERY excited about each little thing! When I say unimpressed, I don’t mean that he doesn’t care, I think they just happen to him so subtly that he doesn’t really recognize that they are improvements… well that’s what we are for, reminders! 😊 PENNY! My mom and Jennifer‘s mom have been awesome at recording videos for us and keeping us in the loop with each little victory! PENNY!

We get very excited about the vision changes and it’s so rewarding to have him ‘show off’ what he can do/see – still mostly colors but there are improvements in object recognition too! I held up a travel mug and he was quick to tell me that it looked like a glass (had some metal and was a ‘glass’ shape) and that was so impressive and awesome!! It was about 2 feet or so away, so shapes seem to slowly be forming for him and we pray and hope that that just keeps continuing!! For now, we will take that improvement and celebrate it! PENNY!!

His therapies are getting more and more fun for him! His balance is improving, his strength is improving, his control, the works!!! IT’S AWESOME!!

We may even be able to take him to the gym soon for him to do a full workout routine! That will be so cool! He is looking forward to doing that!!

Taylor made the most out of his day, I don’t know how he does it, but I am so glad that he does!

We all hope you had a great day too! Keep celebrating each little thing, they matter and they add up!! I never would have thought we would be where we are today… and it’s all because of those tiny things all along.. I promise, they matter, just give it time and keep celebrating them!!

Please, PLEASE keep fighting with us for Taylor – I know he is doing great, which we are so excited about… but we absolutely are nowhere near the end of his journey! We need you, your thoughts, your love, your prayers!!

Until tomorrow… WE LOVE YA’LL!!!
