Weds. January 19th, 2011

Josh has continued this week with some more storming
periods, which have been a little disruptive
to his therapy activities. Still we press on.

Josh's left hand is extremely active, exploring
every inch of sheet, shirt, pillow and whatever
object you put close by. It is almost nonstop,
even when he appears to be asleep. Sometimes
during these push / pull periods, he will actually
lift his head off the pillow as if he wants to sit
up in bed, all the while vocalizing. When
he grabbed my arm and tried to pull himself up,
I asked if he wanted to get up. In between the
growling he said "Uh huh."

Josh goes back to Paoli in the morning for a
follow up CT scan.

We are hoping and praying for the storming to
pass so that he can push through in therapy.
Josh needs to make some more concrete gains in the
next two weeks to be able to stay on course here in the
rehab program.

Please pray for Josh's calm, strength and progress through the
next few weeks.

  5. I check this site periodically but the pictures won't load and Im not able to comment from work. I'm Josh's regular OT from PH. Thank you for posting this online, it's rewarding for me to see the progress he is making and continues to reassure me that I've chosen the right profession and that every session really matters. I think about him often and will always remember the first purposeful response Darling and I witnessed. (an amazing moment!!) I wish you all the best and I'll be checking back.
