This is John doing therapy. He is working on strenghtening his arms and learning to sit up.( I got some of my pictures out of order. ) He is on his side and then he leans up on his elbow then he pushes himself up with his elbow to sit up. It is difficult for him and so many times my heart breaks watching him struggle to do this. But, I am also happy that he even has this much mobility. He is using a weight machine to strenghten his arms. The picture with him moving the loops on his legs he is learning to move around on a bed. The picture where his hands are together and he has a weird little grin on his face he is thinking about pinching me, and the flash blinded him. I tease him all the time that when he gets home I am going to tickle him and he tells me he is going to pinch me if I do. ha ha. So he has been practicing putting his hands together to pinch.
I took our little 3 pound poodle Coco to see John Saturday. I got the OK on it last Friday for him to see her. He has asked for her since the accident. She rolled all over him and gave him kisses and dog hugs. He held her for 2 hours. She has missed him so very much. When it was time to go we were all sad. I hate leaving him and I miss him so much. It just isn't the same with him gone. I am asking everyone to say a special prayer for John. He is still fighting infection and has a terrible bedsore on his tailbone that they are trying to get healed. He really needs a healing touch. Thanks to all of you who have sent cards he just loves them. ~Nita~
