August 19

Rehabilitation day 1

Jeremy's day!!!!!

Physical Therapy & Occupational Therapy - They started out simple. They sat him up in bed and did stretching exercises with him. Jeremy has a habit now of bending his head forward when things are hard. We need to work that out. The mom in me wants to say "Sit up straight". They are working on that. In the afternoon they got him up in the chair again, more working of muscle tone etc.

Speech Therapy - When the speech therapist came in today Greg mentioned that they had done the swallow test several weeks ago and about me feeding him ice. She gave him ice and Jeremy did all the appropriate things. GREAT! Then she gave him some pudding and he did the same with the pudding. ATE IT!

Respiratory Therapy - After the speech therapist did their assessment of Jeremy, respiratory came in, took one look at Jeremy and said "We will take out the trach tomorrow right after they do the MRI."

Doctor - The doctor came in and did complete assessment of Jeremy. Ordered an MRI. His partner is an expert in spasms, posturing, tone. He will be in tomorrow to check Jeremy out. PROGRESS!

Social Worker - Said that she put her most aggressive therapist on Jeremy so we can see how much progress we can make in the 2 weeks we were given to start with.

Thank you for your prayers!!!!!
