December 8

Jeremy went to the doctor again today. This time he went to see the doctor that monitors the baclofen pump. He was very pleased with Jeremy's progress since he saw him 2 weeks ago. We thought they were going to increase the amount of baclofen he is getting, but not so. They are trying to fine tune the amount he is getting. If they give him too much, he wont be able to stand on his legs, but if they don't give him enough, he postures and can't stand on his legs.

They are also talking about another Botox treatment for his right arm. They felt like it has gotten better over the last 2 weeks, but there is a long way to go in getting that right arm to work better.

They added a kind of lap table to Jeremy's wheelchair today, and when I showed up he was using it to writing his name of a piece of paper for the speech therapist. They want to see if they can find a higher one, it is a little low for him. We put his plate on it and it was easier for him to eat. When we got back to the room we put the TV remote on it and he was able to change the channels by himself.

Thank you for your comments, prayers and support!
