Another awesome day for Eric. The number of the day is two. Two nights now off the vent. Two pounds up on the scale this morning since yesterday. Two activity-packed hours with PT/OT. Two root beer floats (one for Mom) at Sonic, along with popcorn chicken. Quote of the day (from Kim, Eric's physical therapist, in response to Eric's progress): "I'm so excited! Did I say that already?"
Andrew brought home their 8th grade yearbook today from school. In elections held prior to Eric getting sick, he was one of four students voted "Most likely to succeed." Eric has proven this to be true already, by showing us all his determination, perseverance, and faith in his recovery.
