Well...it finally happened! Kevin said MOM today - yay!!!! Maritza was telling him he couldn't have any dinner until he said it and he just said it on the first try like he has been saying it all along. I think there were about 12 people in the kitchen and everyone just started clapping and dancing. Kev was so proud of himself!
He has just been making remarkable strides lately.
Today, he was also making his right leg move by using the leg muscles and partially using his left hip. This is the first step toward usage. It's his brain understanding that it can make it happen, it can make it work - even if it has to use any part to do it. It finally seems to realize that the leg is there. I wish y'all could have seen the look on his face too - he was just as surprised as everyone else.
And I am quite proud to announce that East Brady built a skate park and named it after Kevin. Here are a few pics:
Thank you very much to Jeff B. for taking these wonderful photos. I have been told that the kids are all loving it already and we can only hope that someday...someday...Kevin can skate again.
I will tell you that Kevin apparently was able to read the sign and got all excited. And he must have remembered the houses behind the park as he kept pointing to them. Photos seem to always jog his memory.
Well, I am going to cut this short today. I have to run Breezy home as she called me at 3am petrified and told me there were gunshots behind the hotel. Obviously, I went to get her and bring her here for the night. We were told they might have been fireworks, but who can say for sure. I know there were cops everywhere by the time I got over there. So anyway, I have to take her back to the hotel and pretend we are living in a safe community. Boy, have we been spoiled all these years...
First 2 from the Nov kit!
