Great news!

The physical therapist today said that Fletcher is making enormous and fast improvements. He is now holding his head up straight "all of the time," whereas last week it was "some of the time." His jaw is straighter. He can tilt his head some to the right. He is still trying to do everything curled up to the left but we are learning more exercises all the time to help train the right muscles to do their thing. (For instance, he started rolling across the room today, which is good since the PT won't come again for two weeks, and so I learned some exercises that will help train his muscles to roll the other direction, ie, the one that is harder for him due to being coiled to his left.)

The best news of all, though, is that, at this rate, he won't need PT after he learns to walk, and that we could be done with the visits around 9 or 10 months!!! I am so happy that he is doing so well, and I am encouraged to keep up our somewhat rigorous daily routines. He is doing so well. I am so proud of our strong little dude!
