Jack back at Bloorview

Monday 9:15am

Jack has returned to Blooview this morning with Grandma.

Unfortunately, I came down with the stomach flu yesterday and have to now isolate myself from Jack for several days.  So Jack slept at Grandma and Grandpa’s last night and Grandma will be staying with him at Bloorview until Wednesday evening.   I miss him!

Over the weekend, Jack mainly relaxed in front of the TV.  He has taken a couple of steps on his own, but still requires a lot of assistance or his wheelchair to move around the house.  His speech also still remains quite limited.  So he still has a long ways to go, but is slowly progressing!

    Hi Guys,

    I’m sorry I didn’t get to see you all yesterday, but Yvonne had thrown me a ‘surprise’ B’day party (I’m not saying which one, but I’m now pretty ‘nifty’).

    Hi Jodi, I hope you begin to feel better soon.

    Jack, you’re looking great in the photograph – keep on keeping on, because you are doing wonderfully well.

    Yours in Christ,

    Rev. Mike

    Hi Jodi,

    we wish you a fast recovery from your flu – it must be so hard to be away from jack during this time.
    Jack is so brave and he looks fantastic despite all he has gone through. I’m so happy that he is able to go home over the weekends so that Christopher won’t fear about Jack never returning home any more.

    It is just fantastic news that Jack haven’t had seizures so far. We are praying that won’t have seizures at all any more.

    These next weeks your whole family needs to be very patient with Jack’s recovery. But he is such a strong boy and we are confident that he will be healthier than ever when he returns home.

    All our love to your family,

    Daniel & Sunny
