Forrest had a good day today, all considering. He was able to raise his hand to wave at his doctor, as well as waving feebly goodbye to me when I left. He was able to slowly give me our brother handshake! Everything is difficult for him, but he is in there trying and giving it all he's got, and that's the important part. He's a fighter and he's going to make it through. "It's always too early to give up." Medical difficulties remain as he is still in the ICU recovering from surgery. He is still fighting the infection, which hopefully the quick intervention and continued antibiotics will take care of. We are working on not losing all the great progress he was making before. We are trying to keep him supple and maintain his range of motion for his anticipated future return to therapy and recovery at National Rehab Hospital. He laughed and smiled watching your videos in the facebook group, thank you to all who contribute and to those who continue to post messages and videos. And thank you for the comments on the blog, they are heartwarming and encouraging. Mom, Dad, and Maylin continue to be amazing champions to Forrest and his recovery.
