Progress

Monday, October 19, 2009












Eliah is making great progress, and I am thrilled!! Every day there are new movements, thoughts, and sounds. There are still frustrations and struggles, but Eliah has improved so much. His blood pressure was on the rise again, but with a small adjustment to his medication a couple weeks ago, he is more relaxed and happy. He has gone without seizures for a couple months, and his health seems much more stable overall.

Eliah is still sleeping through the night (mostly), and eats a well-balanced diet. He is now 36" tall and weighs 27lbs. He's rolling from one side of the room to the other. And he can sit independently for almost a minute. One of the videos below is Eliah in his walker at Physical Therapy. For him, this was a MAJOR task, and very exhausting. As our therapist said, what he was doing in the video is the equivalent of us running miles.

The other video is some playtime and "talking" that Eliah was doing this evening. I'm so proud of his progress and I am hopeful that in the months and years to come, his brain makes MANY more connections to further repair itself.
