A Better Day

Jacob certainly had a better day today than yesterday. He ended up having 4 1/2 hours of P.T. Something new today was that Jacob got to play basketball. We actually played a couple games of HORSE. I’m going to brag that I won both games only because I’ve never been able to beat him before. He said it doesn’t count because of his condition, but I gotta take what I can get. 🙂 Jacob also played Wii Fit. They’ve had him on it just about every day to help with his balance. Best of all, he played “hockey” against 2 female Physical Therapists. They took turns being the goalie. It was quite entertaining! For those of you who don’t know Jacob, he’s played hockey for the past 5 years, so he gave those girls a run for their money. Plus just watching them try to hold a hockey stick was funny enough!

To top the day off, Caleb (Jacob’s younger brother), cousins Jared and Jay, and Aunts came for a visit. We all had some good laughs, as the boys were quite funny! It’s so nice to have company and so hard when they have to leave. Hopefully time here will start going by faster. We wish you all well!!!

One last thing, for all the Yoopers out there, there will be a Spaghetti Benefit Dinner for Jacob at the American Legion in Little Lake on May 21st. Time and details to follow…

    Jacob, you must have some crazy PT’s if they are willing to play goalie, especially against you. I hope you took it a little easy on them. I wouldn’t show them how to hold the stick though, shooters need to keep the advantage. Keep pushing forward buddy.
