Today is going great! This morning Ethan had his monthly visit from his Physical Therapist. She is great with him and after playing/evaluating him today had great news - she said Ethan is making significant progress and that if she didn't know his background that she'd think she was looking at a "normal" 3 to 4 month old! YEAH, we are catching up!

She has given me some new exercises to work with Ethan at continuing to strengthen his neck muscles which will help him with head control. Increased head control should also help him with his eating (he still has some difficulty with this at times). He is also supposed to continue LOTS (ideally 2 hours a day) of tummy time.

The PT is also going to start the paper work with insurance in case Ethan gets a helmet. She said he still has a little bit of time before we would have to make a decision about the helmet and we will wait until he gets his hearing aids, so that way the helmet can be fitted around those.

I'm just so excited about the report from the PT. :) I know that Ethan may progress at his own rate, but progress is progress no matter what!

Way to go Ethan! Today's news was an answer to prayer. We love to hear good news.

Please continue to pray for Ethan's health and for him to continue to grow and develop. Please also pray for all the other PBD kids and that a treatment and cure will be found for these disorders.
