Fishing...in a hospital??

Jackson has been busy the past couple of days. He worked with a fishing rod in therapy and did great. He also wrote his name when the speech therapist asked him to, which is definitely a small miracle in our eyes! The most exciting thing is that he has been asserting himself more; lately he is more involved and lets momma know what he does and does not want. She is working hard to learn how to operate the feeding pump so she can take care of him. Who knew she'd grow up to be a nurse?

The whole family went up to visit Jackson and mom this past weekend. We stayed overnight and got some good quality time together, nothing like long car trips with little wild ones and small hospital rooms to bring you closer. Pretty sure we are all a little crazier now.

Jackson is working hard. The therapy he does everyday is tough, but he is a diligent and strong boy. He sure appreciates all the love and prayers. We do too!
