Eric had a busy day today! He had a good time with PT/OT this AM, as you can see from the photo below. In addition to playing ball, Eric stood a couple times for several seconds, and he even took a few steps. We had a few visitors. And the speech therapist came today for a speaking valve trial. He barely was able to whisper, but the therapist said he did great! That his vocal cords are working well. And it will get better each day. Eric is improving daily, but lack of sleep, shortness of breath, and coughing, and lack of appetite are still big issues. Thanks so much for your continued prayers and concerns.

I got so many positive comments on the nature photos yesterday, I included a few more today.

Angie, it sure looks like spring has sprung in the is cold and rainy here in Maryland. I am so happy that things are slowly improving for Eric. He looks happy with his PT--what a great sign! We continue to pray for you and your family. I hope that you are home soon. Best, Jennifer

Ah, Spring! We're still waiting for it to arrive. The flowers say it is here, but the temperature doesn't. Maybe tomorrow. Thanks for the lovely photos, and glad to see it's warm enough somewhere for shorts!

Father, thank You that Eric gets the sleep that he needs, his breathing is normal, his lungs are clear, and his appetite is back. Thank You for blessing him with a wonderful day.
By the way Eric, you look great! Keep up the good work.

It's so good to see Eric sitting in the chair! I'm glad that Andrew got to visit during break. I'm sure he was happy to be there with you. We're still praying for you all and think about you every day. Sending you virtual hugs and kisses!

Love, Renee
