Today, I saw improvement. He made jokes. He talked about things he remembers happening, like he usually does ("Remember that time we had a snack outside at Aunt Tammi's?"). He winked and gave me a thumbs up after doing more than was asked of him. No getting stuck while trying to complete a thought and no getting overly upset. He seemed much better than yesterday personality-wise. And the tics are much milder and less frequent.
This picture was taken yesterday. Notice his right hand. He was in the middle of doing some repetitive opening and closing. I didn't see as much of that today. He still did some of the movements, but it was noticeably milder that it has been.
I am always grateful to be able to spend my days with him, but have been especially thankful this week. I don't know what to expect tomorrow, but today made my heart happy.
In other news, on Monday, Levi decided he would get out of bed at nap time. I had just reorganized his room.
The teachers that are on Wes's team went in together and got Adam these Lincoln Logs. He was so excited. His daddy was pretty happy, too. It always means a lot to share a favorite childhood activity with your own child. This was a special moment for everybody.
Some of our favorite people in all the world are going to be here tomorrow. The Albers Family is traveling from Texas, and we are so excited!
I will keep you posted on Adam. Please pray for continued progress. Thank you so very much for your encouragement, kind words, and especially the prayers. God listens.
