It seems lately I always start these posts with an apology for not keeping everyone updated. So once again, I am sorry for the lack of updates, but let's get caught up on where we are today. Spoiler alert: Jo continues to slowly improve and while we haven't had any major improvements, Jo has never stepped back, he ALWAYS moves forward!
Mom and dad continue to be there for our children and find our own moments to reflect on our crazy life. It is incredibly easy to cry, feel desperate, and become inpatient. Our kids keep us centered and remind us to stay positive. Mom is a rock, she has never doubted Jo's full recovery, and it fuels me every day to stay present. The tricky part is to stay in the now. Don't look to far back, don't look to far forward, be present everyday for your family. Provide the hope that they need to move forward. Try not to let them see you cry, and never doubt that Jo is fighting his way back!
Jojobinks you are an amazing inspiration to so many! Your will to push forward lifts us up. Your smile reminds us that you are fighting your way back and you are still our happy fun loving son. We know you miss the things you used to do, but also know with time each of them will return. Continue to push yourself and know that Mom, Dad, and all of your family and friends are by your side on this journey. We love you to the moon and back sweet angel, YOU'VE GOT THIS!
