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.
