Hello to you all,
Buddy is still making progress. You all would be amazed at the small miracles that I get to witness each day during his therapy sessions. For example, while working with speech therapist on strengthening his vocal cords, one of his tasks was to blow a spit ball out of a straw. Another one, stick out his tongue and wiggle it and then open his mouth as wide as he could and prevent the therapist from forcing it shut. Believe me it was very hard for him but he did enjoy acting like a little boy again.
We will be coming home within the next 3 to 4 weeks. We miss our kids and right now home is where we want to be. We have been in a hospital setting for a couple of months now and I feel that being around familiar faces, like family and friends, will also help Buddy during his recovery. We will continue to care for him in our home and do in home therapy, even if means making some modifications within our home to accommodate Buddy’s needs. This place is awesome. The“ SHEPHERD’S “ have been good to us and are doing everything possible to help Buddy with his rehabilitation. We have a long journey ahead of us but we will get through this with your love and support…………..THANK YOU ALL
