By sharing our story and our experiences with this birth injury we will hopefully educate people. Knowledge is power. Our hope is that you will read this blog, share it with your friends, and they will share with their friends. Then in some small way we have prevented other families from having to go through what we have.

That's what Carri, Jadon's physical therapist said. At least half of the bicep seems to be working. She wants to start him in the pool for water therapy, possibly in two weeks. We'll be able to see very small muscle movements easier in the pool. So exciting!

During the past few days we've seen hints of Jadon's arm bending at the elbow! We'll have to wait for Tuesday's PT appointment so that we can confirm that it is truly bicept and not some other force (shoulder shrug, gravity, wishfull thinking, etc...). The next few months should prove to be exciting. It has been 4.5 months since surgery and the results are to start showing after 6 to 8 months.

I just wanted to share Jadon's latest accomplishment. On Dec. 30th at the Ronald McDonald House Jadon took his first step. Since then he has been trying to take more and more steps. In the last week he has really been working hard on it. We will look over to see what he is doing and see him slowly working his way from the refrigerator to the table. Yesterday we got him to walk all the way across the living room. His brother and sister are having a lot of fun helping him walk. I don't know who is more excited in this video, Jadon or his siblings.
