I am terrible at this Blog thing.. very busy driving Everett to and from Therapy sessions..
Ev is doing well, I've been able to get him out of his wheelchair and walking (with help) with a quad cane. His body is still weak and his ankle & knee still are not strong enough or straight enough to walk on a permanent basis, a wheelchair is still very much needed.
Sadly the ChipIn page service is ending.. I will have a new way to generate a fundraiser for Ev so we can purchase a suitable wheelchair, AFO (for his leg) and other medical devices that are very costly! Ughhh
For the last 1 1/2 month Ev has been testing for his IEP (Individual Educational Plan) to get back into school...so we had the Big meeting on Tuesday... boy was that a long meeting! All went well and Ev will be getting the services that he deserves, as well as the district having him evaluated by aTBI specialist. He will not sty this way he's getting better!!!
Ev had his first official day back at school yesterday. It started out with nausea and a headache.. after lying down for 45 min he got up and said yes he can work! He made it untill 3pm! The Gilroy Distpatch followed him and took some awesome photos of him working in his classes. Not sure when the article will be published.
Everett talks a lot more these days, pieces of his memory is back, visual reading memory is back.. He is working on fine motor skills with his right hand, and his short term memory that is very much lacking in memory.
Each day is an improvement in his Life!! I love that he has such a good attitude and is eager to relearn all that he already knew, his great sense of humor is intact and he can find humor in his small mistakes.
I love to se Ev's huge smile when accomplishes his work, small victories.. as he raises his hands in the air pretending the scream n yell like a crowd...
Most days he works on the Nook the school provided him with, he works on educational games, reading, letters, and memory games. He remembered how to use the computer and write down the names of his favorite bands,,, His all time fav is Green Day, he often sings their songs.. Wake me up when September Ends. Anyone out there know Green Day??? Anyone anyone He would love to meet them!!!
More to come, It's time for dinner!
This is Ev enjoying homemade breakfast at school.. his teacher made these delicious potato n cheese enchiladas!! yum
