September 21

Jeremy was up on the tilt table today with his feet flat and ankles firm. It may take awhile for him to build up the strength in his ankles that he needs to carry his weight. At this point we are overjoyed with every minute he is upright.

His appetite seems to have shrunk in the last 24 hours. Today he wasn't very interested in breakfast or lunch. At lunch time I tried everything on his tray and 3 or 4 things I brought from home. He was just tired!!!!! So I let him sleep. Around 4:30 we decided to go out to dinner for brother Eric's birthday and a friend came by to spend time with Jeremy and help with dinner. That is when the evening got interesting! Jeremy was either scaring him to death or laughing so hard he could hardly eat - but they had fun and Jeremy did eat. Bill said he probably used up more calories laughing than he ate but after all "Laughter is the best medicine".

We have our "family conference" with the team at the hospital on Wednesday to discuss where we go from here?!? Plans?!? Were not really sure but we will keep you posted.

They took Jeremy's stitches out today and everything looks really good! The nurse though it was the best stitching job this doctor had ever done.

Thank you for your continued prayers and support.
