Garren made a goal today! It's actually a pretty big baby step for him. He was able to vertically track with both eyes. First Tara used a light in front of each eye, one eye at a time. Garren followed it up and down, consistently, with both eyes. Then she held a mirror in front of Garren and moved it up and down. He was able to track with that as well. Finally, she took a football and held it up in front of him. When she moved it up and down, his eyes followed. That was very cool to see! He is not able to track horizontally (side to side) yet.
Another baby step for Garren - they are cutting him back from 10 to 7 hours on the vent overnight. That's another step in the right direction. Go Garren!
This morning I read Psalm 125:1 -
"Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion.
It cannot be shaken; it remains forever."
Sometimes I feel like I am being shaken. Rather violently actually. I am so thankful that my trust is in the Lord. I pray that we will continue to endure. I pray that I will continue to be the husband and father that God has called me to be. It's so easy to get dragged down. It's so easy to feel sorry for yourself. I pray that I will be like Mount Zion...it cannot be shaken.
