Now we are getting somewhere.
I finally was able to see the physical and occupational therapists at work with Vernon today. They worked for about 20 minutes, as they have been doing every day this week. So far, Jaime and Veronica are working as a team, helping each other with his weight, as he can’t hold himself up alone yet. And of course they are both getting to know him and his abilities/limitations. Eventually as Vernon gets stronger, they will be able to work on him in separate sessions.
I was so proud to see him sitting up. Yes, he was aided, but he was able to follow instructions where possible. He can open his eyes, track movement (to a degree), and move his head around a little. I have never seen him nod yes and shake no as clearly and as often as I did today—especially at the questioning of others.
So at 14 weeks in, I present you with a SITTING VERNON!
BRAVO TO OUR HERO!
