Today marks a historic day for Forrest and his blog on several accounts. Since Forrest continues to have episodes of motion sickness, his ability to travel is quite limited. Part of overcoming this condition involves taking short trips on days when he is feeling well (and the weather and roads are good!). Fortunately, with the aide of his nurse and his support team, Forrest is able to make it to several places that are close to home and familiar to him. Today, we took advantage of the sunshine and made the short trip to town to visit The Common Grounds where he was able to see long time friend Alix. We were joined by two of Forrest's amazing aunts and his Grandma Norma.
The blog has been an important lifeline for Forrest and his team to stay connected to friends, family and community. Today, for the first time ever, Forrest had an active part in updating his blog. From signing in to uploading the photos to writing the headline and photo captions, Forrest used his improving fine motor skills with his right hand to maneuver around the blog and his computer. Once he finishes typing his photo captions, Forrest will push the "publish" button to post his very first entry!
