Isaac had a fun birthday party yesterday with the family. He was having a stellar day on room air and he also slept in so he was alert and happy most of the day! I have been feeling rather down lately because each year brings up the emotions of how delayed he is and how we are still dealing with the trach and everything that comes with it.....the nurses, the tubes, the monitoring, the list goes on. Then yesterday I watched him scoot around the house in his gait trainer without any attachments. I was reminded that he really has come a long way! I got him a Nemo cake because it's his favorite movie in the whole wide world!
I love that he scoots backwards in his gait trainer and usually only uses 1 foot so he looks like he's trying to skateboard. Our goal this year is to get him to move forward with both feet, but that could be a process. Oh well, I'm just glad that he can move around any way he can! Here he's trying so hard to see his great grandma so that they can hold hands.
