Hi all, it's been a while since our last update. Harry had been spiking fevers for about a week in rehab so they finally put him back on IV antibiotics. That seems to have helped. He still has a feeding tube as you can see, but we are hoping that can come out soon, the formula they give him really bothers his stomach. He is gradually moving his limbs more, his legs and left hand, the right hand is still pretty still. He has started holding his head up briefly by himself, and has added a few more words, 'yeah, no, mommy and daddy'. Sarah's mom is watching him now, and she said at the gift shop he also said, 'blue, yellow' and 'that one'. All are really good signs of improvement and the therapies are working. He still wears a diaper, but will take food and drink by mouth. He's on all kinds of meds, and takes two naps a day. I think the physical therapy really wears him out. The nurses of course all love him, one named Brandi, from 6W says she's his girlfriend. And he still cannot sit up yet, but all in good time. So thanks to everyone for your love, prayers and support, and thanks to our moms for watching the kids. Our schedule is going to get alot more crazy when mom Kreitzer goes back to NC, but we'll figure it out. In the mean time, mom Richardson has helped down south and is with Harry right now, so we can work a little in SB. Very strange to be back after being in the hospital for two weeks. Anyway, if he could say it, I'm sure Harry would say he loves you.
