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!!!
