Getting Stronger

Hi Everyone,

Does anyone read this?? Well any who it's been a while.. Everett is moving right along. His Physical and Occupational therapy is going well. He is getting stronger and smarter everyday!
I get secretly emotional every time he gets to a new mile stone!

Ev has had headaches on and off nothing major this time but he was dialed up again.. so he can have more fluid in his brain. (Dialed up) we he has a permanent shunt in his brain which has a small valve that opens and closes, it controls and drains the fluid in his brain, without the shunt his brain would fill up with too much fluid or may drain to fast causing more drain damage.

Everett is back in school, we had a boring Spring Break and lots of Dr's appointments and therapy sessions. I just started Ev on Neuro acupuncture, his first session went well, extremely expensive, and as his mother I will do anything help him get better. He did well with the needles in his head. It was interesting all that they do. So the needles were placed in certain areas of his head, she would ask questions and would massage the area where the needle was placed and would then have him move a limb, this went on for a while. All needles placed then he had to do some physical movements and stretches, then massage the area again. I swear it was working!! The freaky part for me they sent him home with me with the needles still in his head!!! Ahhh this was to continue to bring good energy to his affected areas.
I tell ya he was so funny all the way home in the middle of heavy traffic!! I was laughing so hard I had tears in my eyes. He was just signing songs, like he always does, being extra silly and gesturing to me with funny looks on his face!

The needles in his head!

Ev had quite a bit of homework over Spring Break, it took him a few days to do his Math, but he did it on his own with little help! So proud of him!

The day after his acupuncture appointment his phone was reactivated, he had been trying to unlock his phone for a couple of days and could not figure out the puzzle code, so Saturday Shazam he got it the first try!! yeahhhh He just remembered!

His memory is still gone but he has moments when he remembers things, day to day is still very difficult for him. I can't imagine what he's thinking, wondering why he can't remember anything.
It's like Ground Hog day, almost reliving the day... he just has no memory of his day! I am glad that he remembers me now.... his mom!

The one thing I really love and Enjoy Every Day I His Big Smile!! This is Ev taking a break from his math homework with a big smile on his face!!!

Me and my daughter go walking a lot, so last week Everett says, "I wanna go for a walk." so ok I didn't think he was up for it but he went as far as he could walking with his cane! Big Smile On His Face!

Well I need to clean up and get him ready for a shower! You all Have a fabulous evening/Day!
Hug your loved ones, tell your children, parents significant other you Love them.. because you never know what tomorrow may bring!
