PT, PT and more PT

Physical therapy is the name of the game now. Evan has PT four times a week and his therapists are working him hard. He thinks he's playing, and that's pretty much the only way it'll work with kids. We've seen a lot of good progress and he improves in some area every day. He's still not as steady as he was pre-surgery, but we expect him to get back to where he was at a minimum. We are hopeful that he will surpass his prior goals, but we're all taking it one day at a time.

Watching Evan reminds me of when he was learning to walk and everyday there would be something new. We've watched him go through those milestones all over again: wobbly steps, standing up with assistance, walking with confidence, managing stairs, standing up independently, running, etc. He's still pretty wobbly when he runs and has a lot of strength to regain in his legs, but he has a lot of energy and that works in his favor!

Hi everyone!! I love this site - now I can stay up to date on the life and times of Evan Moss! Every time I see that great pic of Evan on the floor I smile, then wonder if ticket scalping will be in his future? Hope you all have a Merry Christmas...we miss you!
