November 9

Stephen and I just talked to Debi. She and Jeremy went to see Dr. McMartin, a rehabilitation doctor and Jeremy's primary care physician, today. Apparently, he had received some glowing reports from the therapy team about Jeremy's progress, which is often rare for someone in Jeremy's condition. They were very impressed by the way Jeremy engages in a conversation. However, if he doesn't feel like he's directly a part of it, he will disengage. Dr. McMartin seemed to think that medication at this point wasn't necessary which is also pretty cool.

Jeremy is able to help more and more with his own care. He is now able to take off his shirt by himself, and he surprised Debi today by bending down all the way to undo the Velcro on his shoes. Little does he know, that now that she knows he can do it, she's going to keep making him do it. :) In the past, it has been difficult to get him to do help with things like this, but now he seems to be taking the initiative to do it. He seems to understand that doing these things will make him better.

We are very excited to be able to go see Jeremy for a long weekend over Thanksgiving. It's been a long time since we were down and we'll be sure to post some new pictures! Thank you for all of your prayers for Jeremy, and thank you to all of those who are still so faithfully checking this blog, we will continue to do our best to keep you updated!
