Quite the handsome devil.

We are never alone.

Friday night Ashley came to visit us. I don't know who was happier to see the other, him or Jackson. They held hands and couldn't stop staring at each other. Ashley was thrilled to see how much progress he has made in just a few days. Therapy schedules are a little more relaxed on the weekend so we got to sleep a little later on Saturday and spent some time together in our room. Ashley got in bed with Jackson and they watched videos together on the laptop.

Jackson did some great supported walking yesterday. He doesn't want to fool with a walker or anything, just support him under the arms and he will go.  He is doing better supporting his head and trunk, following directions (thumbs up, shaking hands, kicking balls and pressing buttons) and opening his mouth for bites of popsicle and swallowing. We have a long way to go, but we have come so far!

Today I am missing my church family.  Not attending church for over a month now has made me realize what a blessing and a privilege it is to be able to meet and worship together each Sunday.
Last night before I fell asleep I thought about how I haven't been alone for a moment through this whole experience. The Lord has been right by my side and has inspired good people to help us in so many ways.  We love you and appreciate all you do for us!
