Go Cuse!! Bill is from Syracuse, so Tripp loves sporting SU. Well, we just got back from therapy. Tripp did good but I wouldn’t say it was a Rock Star day. He did great on his knees. They were trying to get him to lift his head. So every time he lifted his head, they would blast some “life is a highway” from Cars. Then they would stop the music when he dropped his head. Then we moved to speech. They gave us Yes and No cards to try to get him to communicate. He needs to look at the answer. She also said to make flash cards of things like moms porch for “outside” and a Flash card of the TV. And let him look at the card he wants. So we are starting that today. He has been blinking for yes, so this is just another way to communicate. He had a great night. We both went to sleep at 10 last night. Bill volunteered to do his midnight meds so I didn’t move til 5:30 this morning. Tripp slept till after 8 this morning. So good night for both of us. Thank you all for your prayers. Love you all.
