Victor has settled into his new surroundings. The room is larger than before. He's been assigned an occupational therapist, physical therapist, and speech therapist. They meet with him on a regular basis to help him through recovery.
In the past week Victor has progressively improved his depth perception, his eye to hand coordination, sitting and standing balance, and fine motor skills. Watching his body awaken, little by little, forces one to ponder the truly wondrous nature of the body and the drive in every part and particle to live. It's amazing to see it in his eyes and feel the presence of his eternal spirit. He is so alive, willing and eager. The body and spirit together are truly an eternal blessing and gift.
Victor has not spoken yet, but at times seems anxious to speak. He hears adequately and answers simple written yes or no questions. On occasion he responds with head nodding. Falling is still a major concern so we continue to watch him 24/7.
Lately, Victor's curiosity has gotten the better of him and he has been taking wheel chair trips out of his room. We push him around or sometimes he pushes himself. He often points the way he wants to go. He'll even attempt to open doors and go into areas that are "staff and doctor only."
We all Love you Victor!
