Greetings to all of you. My daughter and sister-in-law have been telling me about a group on Facebook that was created for people praying for Robbie. I reactivated my account today to check it out and was touched and humbled by the close to 900 people who have signed up for the updates and are writing messages of support and prayer for our son. As I went through and looked at the members, I didn’t even know more than half of them.
Robbie continues to work hard trying to do things that he used to do without thinking: closing his mouth (not yet), moving his tongue (a little), swallowing (some), being able to grab and hold onto things like balls or nerf guns (better each day), moving his legs (some), putting his heels on the floor when he stands (sometimes he is able to but most often not). So, we continue to give praise for small improvements and at the same time our hearts break with the overwhelming desire to see our son be the healthy and active young boy that he was a month ago.
They are talking about moving him up to the Physical Therapy wing so they can do more with him throughout the day. This will be dependent on what our insurance will allow. I spent a few hours today trying to get things figured out with our international insurance which, I’m sure, is dealing with sticker shock at American medical costs.
PRAY THAT OUR INSURANCE WILL COVER WHAT IT IS SUPPOSED TO AND THAT ROBBIE CAN MOVE TO THE PHYSICAL THERAPY AREA.
I will be heading up to Fayetteville with our girls Friday afternoon and returning Sunday afternoon. Tanja will be here with my brother and sister and others who are helping out.
Blessings to you all,
