It's as though he's really trying hard. Heather, a long time friend and someone who has known Ian all his life, came today to work with Ian. She said he really cooperated with some things, though other things he resisted. She did get him to cross his feet. She also noticed that he seems to be swallowing better which, if he can do it consistently, is significant progress. Later, another friend and speech therapist, Amanda, visited and noticed again that he was cooperating with the things she would ask him to do. Tonight, Bill, an attendant care worker, noticed the same kinds of things. His comment was that Ian seemed to work so hard at focusing on the tasks at hand, it probably wore him out. He's really tired tonight.
Thank you for praying.
