Hi everyone! Happy holidays, Merry Christmas. Jo is doing great! He is coming back to us day by day, and it is amazing to bear witness to these miracles each and every day!
The last post had quite a few updates on all his progress just a few more to add, but they are amazing!
The most exciting physical improvement came during his recent speech therapy session. Since he started therapy , 4 weeks ago, we have been working hard to get Jo to open his mouth on command. Move his lips and "re-connect" his mouth movements with his brain. Up until this past week most movements with his mouth were not on command, and even when we asked to do a simple task like open your mouth, even though it was obvious he was trying, he just couldn't do it. That has changed!
Recently we have been using a candy cane to get Jo to puerse his lips (duck lips).
It was so awesome!
Now you know Jo is a huge walking dead fan. Let me end with these 2 videos!!!!
Jojobinks, you keep pushing. We love you so much! You are coming back day by day! The world is rooting for you and God is with you! We love you to the moon and back sweet angel. YOU'VE GOT THIS!
