February 26

Today was like most other days. Jeremy did his usual therapies. One of his speech therapists was not there today, so I decided to play the part myself. It has been a real challenge to get Jeremy to put his lips together when he talks. Deb says he is relearning to move parts of his face (lips), due to the brain injury. We practiced "Peter Piper Picked a Peck Of Pickled Peppers". He did so very well, and was so patient, as I so frequently had to keep introducing his top lip to his bottom lip. He has such a great sense of humor as I was so tongue tied most of the time, inappropriate words were flowing out of my mouth. So I flunked Speech Therapy. Jeremy got an 'A' though. The minor problem with all this success in therapy, is that tomorrow, Jeremy will not remember what he accomplished today. So as much as we praise him for what he has learned, he learns it all over again tomorrow. Yet the progress holds, and improves. The brain is fascinating. Jeremy practiced driving his motorized chair today. He has a lot of fun with that freedom. PT is not ready to give him a license. Driving those motorized wheel chairs is not as easy as we may think.
Thank you for your prayers, and kind thoughts. Linda
