I get by with a little help from my friends

2011-09-28 09:37:57 by Sarah Sanford, Patient Family, as posted on the inside.akronchildrens.org blog.

Baby Jude has found friends in all kinds of places - doctors, therapists, social workers, durable medical equipment, walkers, horses - you name it, he can make a friend.

Baby Jude is making progress by leaps and bounds. Steps with a walker. Steps without a walker.  Steps with the wall bar to go side to side.  Learning to recognize faces in the mirror above it.

Communicating - it ain't traditional or all that vocal sometimes, but with sign language and a very expressive face, Baby Jude gets his point across.

He is loving the treadmill at Akron Children's Hospital (awesome tool, by the way!) and has become a tad obsessed with the horses at Victory Gallop. (It's his magical place on earth!)

I think it is safe to say that Baby Jude gets by with a little help from his friends - be it equipment, pals, professionals, or animals. Baby Jude gets by.

And for that, we are very Grateful, Prayerful & Hopeful.
