Video of the Day 8/22/12

This Friday we will be transporting Forrest in his van, by gurney, with a nurse and family members present, to Johns Hopkins for a hydrocephaleus consultation. We will post an in-depth update this weekend after a successful trip. 

A big shout out to Aunt Tricia for helping me hold down the home front while Mom and Dad were away for the first time together! Thanks so much and we miss you(especially Sundance)!

Below are a couple of videos taken today that are just a glimpse of the amazing progress he has been making the last few weeks, through hard work and his indomitable spirit!

All the best from Brightwood,

PS: A big thank you in advance to Mom, Dad, and Tami for allowing me to head to San Diego for a couple weeks. 

With lots of hard work and practice over the last 3 months, today, for the first time, Forrest was able to advance his right foot 10 steps on his own

Many wonderful visits from his friends this summer while they were home from school have had a huge impact on his demenor and his progress. Forrest would like to say thank you in sign language to all his friends and supporters.


  1. Well done Forrest! Your progress is amazing. Your thank you was quite touching, but I think I speak for many when I say "thank you" for inspiring us each day to do our best when we see you working so hard and never giving up! It was so great to see you the other day also. Your progress is remarkable! Love to all....

  2. SO COOL!
    Keep up the great work.

  3. Those videos were just amazing! You've made so much progress Forrest! You all are so inspiring and we are praying for continued healing!!

    With Love,
    Kelly and Family
