Another Day

Jacob had another good day again today. This morning’s therapy included working on his balance with the Wii Fit again. He also got to do one of his favorite things – put a Lego set together while standing. He got a 2 hour lunch break and then right back into therapy for 2 1/2 more hours. That included kicking the girls butts in hockey again (I must say, they are getting a tad better), LOTS of walking and strengthening exercises and one tough assignment – putting together another Lego set while balancing on half of a ball. It’s about a foot and a half wide and sits flat on the floor, but the top looks like a bouncy ball. He wasn’t allowed to lean or hold onto anything. I don’t know how he did it for 1/2 hour (with two 2 minute breaks), but he did. He did say his legs were like jello afterward. He’s certainly a champ and determined to get out of here soon. They told him that they’re not letting him leave until he can walk out of here on his own. 🙂 Hopefully that’s sooner than later because we’re both sick of living in a hospital already!

We finished off the day by working hard on a 3-D castle puzzle. It was some much needed down time.

    Hi Jacob! I didn’tknow they could make therapy so much fun. They must like working with kids. It sounds like you are working hard and that you have great therapists. Keep beating them in hockey; maybe you can teach them some skills!
    Here are some more jokes for you:
    Why did the basketball player like cookies?
    Because he could dunk them!
    How did the basketball player stay cool during the game?
    He stood in front of the fans!!

    Pastor Ron and I keep praying for you.
