I forgot to tell yall!!!

Parker has officially tested out of physical and speech therapy!! He is still delayed for his age but he doesnt qualify for therapy anymore! I am so proud of him! I have taken him to physical therapy twice a week since September of 2008 and speech therapy since December 2008. Parker started physical therapy when he was like 10 months old, he had just gotten his g-tube out and he couldnt sit up by himself or roll over. The first week of therapy he learned how to roll over and never stopped from there!! I cant tell you how much the therapists at Easter Seals mean to our family. They sincerely love Parker. They cried on his last visit!

This is a picture of Parker on his very first day of physical therapy. That is his therapist, Leanne, she is the person that taught Parker how to walk. She is AMAZING!! and we love her! She had some hard times with Parker at the beginning. For the first three months, he cried every visit for the entire hour. At first he couldnt make the whole time but he built up his endurance and eventually stopped crying and loved Leanne. She made him work hard! We are so thanful for her....I could have never forced him to use the muscles she did. She is exactly what he needed. Now, I have to keep up witht he home therapy program so that he doesnt fall behind. He will be re-evaluated in 6 months. I know he will be just fine!!

Just wanted to share the good news!
