Taylor Update: 12 Weeks
It is amazing to me what can happen in just a short amount of time. It’s been 12 weeks since Taylor drowned. His recovery, even as we measured it ~2 months ago, is a blessing. Every tiny piece… they mean so much to us!
Here we are at 12 weeks. All those tiny things have built into something so incredible! Taylor is doing so well and he still tries hard every single day! His brain injury comes with many challenges, but one thing we are very grateful for is that he is himself. ❤️
His attitude, his work ethic, his big heart… it’s all him. Thank you God!
Way back at the beginning, when this first happened… as dark as it was… he was alive. Nothing more than that, but he was alive. I remember telling all of his friends and our family… “as hard as it is to see him like that, we would have given everything we have, and everything we will ever have… just to have him like he is now.”
Today, we worry about his vision. Very much. As far down the road that we have traveled… I feel the same way about his vision. As hard as it is to see him like that, we would have given everything we have, and everything we will ever have… just to have him like his now.
But just like before, that does not mean we rest and settle. No way. We are committed to work hard for everything possible… including his vision.
We meet with a new Doctor tomorrow to talk about T’s vision… what he can do, what he might be able to do… and how to get there. We don’t know 100% what will happen during our first appointment, but Jennifer and I know it’s the best next step to figuring out how to increase Taylor’s chances to regain his sight.
Please PLEASE continue to fight with us! We really need all the positive thoughts, love and prayers we can get! The next steps are going to be hard… and hopefully we can dodge bad news.
It may be 12 weeks today… but we are no where near the end. Our tank is full… and we are determined more than ever! We will continue to give everything we have, and everything we will ever have, in order to make sure he has the best life possible!
Until tomorrow… Miracles Happen! WE LOVE YA’LL!!!
One of my goals through sharing the updates is to share T’s determination, spirit, and story, with as many people as possible! Not only to help him, but to help others too! Please join me in this effort! Share on Facebook and on Twitter
