Miracle Healing

It really seems that Jaden's hands are healing at a miraculous rate. It's hard to believe its been just a little over a month since he burned his hands. Just an update for all who are following his progress. He is doing well. He's been a little sick with a flu bug, but otherwise getting back to normal. He hasn't really let it slow him down too much. Doing the stretches and physical therapy is hard though. Dad is such a softy, it usually falls on mom to do. Jeff can't stand making him cry. (Why do I always have to be the bad guy?) Anyway, we're trying to follow the protocol, but I must admit with all my other responsibilities and the other 2 boys, its hard to fit it in 3 times a day like we are supposed to do. Its hard to be motivated when you know he cries the whole time too. I just have to sit and remind myself that the short term pain is worth the long term use of his hands. He gets really tired when we do it too. The other night after we did the stretches, he got in the shower with Jeff (which he loves). He was so relaxed, that he fell asleep in the shower. This is the ultimate in relaxation. We are really just so pleased with his progress. We'll continue to keep you posted. Thanks again for all the love and support.
