Kai buddy had a somewhat restful night, even if it didn’t really start until midnight. The steroids he is on mess with his appetite and generally make him uncomfortable.ย Being in the neuro ward rather than the ICU is a big change. Nurses are only in every 4 hours rather than every 1-2 and it is substantially quieter.

This morning Kai has a lot more strength! He’s rolling around a bit on his own and is up to sitting more upright rather than laying down. The big deal for me was seeing him walk kai and his chair 3.12.14across the room to a wheelchair (which was baited with Starbucks pumpkin bread) with his PT! She pushed him around for a few minutes so that he could get the feeling of hallway air blowing through his hair. Aki missed it, but he’s already asked to go on a walk so we will hopefully make it to some sunshine today.

  9. He’s progressing with leaps and bounds, just anxious to see him actually making those leaps and bounds, as we know he’s capable of, running everywhere, jumping off tables, sofas, etc.etc. Would also like to see him take a bite of that pumpkin bread in case it brings a smile to his face; need to see a happy face!! Love You Little,Brave Kai.
