Will you look at that...

Since my last post on October 12 you'll remember I posted a video of Fletcher 'standing'. It took TWO people to help him stand. In 11 days Fletcher is only needing the assistance of ONE person to help him!! Watch him push down with his feet like he's supposed to! Proud doesn't describe how I'm feeling!

Look who's standing...

Today I had a meeting at TCC so I left my camera in Fletcher's bed just in case he had PT this morning. He did have PT and a nurse videoed it for me. This video took my breath away...


They recently measured Fletcher's legs and one of them is 3/4 of an inch shorter than the other. They are having a special lift made for his shoe so that he'll be able to balance better. Once the lift is done Fletcher will get to start using a gait trainer, which is basically a walker. Exciting things are happening with our boy!

Here's what Fletcher's been up to lately...

Like I said in my last post we brought Fletcher home for Craig's birthday and we went to the Buddy Walk to support my niece Kylie, who has Down Syndrome. Fletcher did great, probably one of our best trips home! Fletcher is doing so well these days! He's started standing in the stander twice a week and is doing great! We had his Patient Care Conference and he grew another inch! Two inches in six months! That's a miracle folks! We saw a plastic surgeon this week about removing the nevus from Fletcher's neck, forehead and right temple. He'll be having surgery in about a month or so. We'd truly covet your prayers as we make decisions concerning the surgery...I'll keep you posted. But for now here's some fun videos of our silly boy!
