A Special Visitor

Someone special came to visit Grant this morning. Grant had a great time visiting with "Cap" as they colored and played legos.  Grant just had to show him his room.  #superherosunday

A Day Out

Today Grant was granted a day out so he could just get away for a while.  His first request, go to Red Robin.  His second was to go look at halloween stuff.  Its the simple things for this kid.  We took him to see Petes Dragon and get Ice Cream too!!!  We love him so much.

First Day of Rehab

Today started out great, Grant was up nice and early and had a good breakfast to prepare for his first day.  The therapist came to pick him up and they were off to a full day.

The day didn't quite work out according to plan and turned out to be a rough start for him. About half way through he got sick during one of his therapy sessions and was just plain worn out.  He had to take a nap to recover from all the excitement and activity.

After a quick nap he was all set to do a little hanging out with mommy.

 I think the highlight of the day though was the therapy dog visit.

More exciting updates to come.

Mail Call

We received Grant's e-cards, Brittany, Chris, Sam, Gabby, Maddy, and Bri. They really cheered him up this morning. Thank you! ❤️

Day 1 Out of PICU

It's only 10:30 and already a great day.  PT and OT came in to get Grant moving and BAM, he's out of bed and walking (with help) over to mommy for "snuggles".  When Physical Medicine Dr came to see him he said "Wait, he walked already?" Grant is kicking ass and taking names.  This is why we call him Iron Man.

Today was a great day for Grant.  He ate all three meals normally and even had some ice cream and banana pudding for dessert.  He watched several movies and slowly got his voice back.
