Doing Well

We are doing good. We made it out of ICU last night. We waited all day for a room. Prasun was hurting and scared yesterday. He is a bit of an anxious child and you can't really blame him for being scared with all that is going on.
We immediately noticed a difference in the tone of Prasun's legs and hips. The doctor told us that he found the nerves that were causing the spastic movements and they were BAD. He cut alot of them. Prasun was laying on his back with his hips rotated slightly to the left when we got to ICU. This is so abnormal because he ALWAYS rotates to the right. We are very optimistic. He can move his legs so now all we have to do is get his strength back. I know we have a long road of therapy ahead of us. 6 months or more of 5 days a week. That is what the therapists are doing. As his parents, I would like to see us do that much. Its time to get both of these kids walking.
Well, I'm sure that was all rambling but I'm going to leave it. I'm going to take a nap with Prasun. Hopefully we will have a great therapy session tomorrow.

I'm glad you can see a difference already -- that will help give you the stamina to cheer him on as he recovers. So happy to hear that Prasun came through it okay!
