Look how far he’s come!

Wednesday 7:45am                    

Looking at this picture with Jack in the ICU, where he had part of his skull off of his head for six days between surgeries and was unable to breath on his own following the second surgery, I am in awe of his recovery!  He is so unbelievable resilient and he continues to make progress every day.

The picture of Jack with the stuffed animal was at a Valentine’s Party at Bloorview.  They had cards, a photo booth, and other special activities for the children.  Jack had so much fun and really felt special there.

I can see more and more of my little sweet Jack returning every day.  He had a relaxing weekend at home and at one point when Christopher tried to wrestle with him, Jack hopped off the couch and chased him down the hallway!  He quickly sat down right afterwards, but it was the first spontaneous burst of energy and running that we’ve seen!  It nearly gave me at heart attack to watch, as my xray vision seemed to look right through Jack’s head to the titanium screws keeping his skull in place, but it was amazing to see his legs moving like that!!!

Jack is now back at Bloorview for the week and Grandma is with him again today.  I can’t wait to see him tomorrow and see his progress!

    Jack, it’s okay to get up to fight with your brother!
    Keep up that recovery spirit and they’ll have to run
    away from you.
    Your parents and grandma and grandpa are doing
    an awesome job. May your strength and peace and
    much hope come from the great Miracle Worker!
