April 28

Our training session went well today on transferring Jeremy to and from the car. The therapist learned that her car (the one in the picture) is easier to transfer to (her front door opens wider than ours). But all in all it worked out fine. Greg learned that the sit and stand transfer to the car is MUCH EASIER! Since Greg is usually the one in front doing all the heavy lifting and I am behind, directing things.

Jeremy is exhibiting more desire to be in control more and more every day. The problem comes in the fact that he doesn't yet have the ability to sit back, formulate his thoughts, control what comes out of his mouth. Most of the time its a rush of words that people can't understand. His care givers are having to learn to slow down and give Jeremy a chance to formulate and say what he wants. HE WANTS CONTROL BACK. Sometimes that is possible and other times it's not. But it is all part of the process that we all have to go through. We have to find creative ways to get Jeremy to cooperate in therapy that may hurt right now but is necessary in recovery.

Thank you for your prayers.
