News & Updates

Entries for July 2013

The support Bryan and our family have received since our last update has been incredible. We really want to update more frequently but it seems time and life get away with us and suddenly it’s almost two months since our last update.
It’s so cute when we take him out and about and people recognize him. They want to shake his hand, say hi or simply smile at him. He’s always confused at how all these people know him and he always asks “do I know you?”, but he gets excited that people know who he is.
We are still figuring out about Bry getting all of his much needed therapies. We found out recently that he needs immediate attention on his nerve damage that is in his left arm, which prevents him from being able to lift it or open his hand. Additionally, he still needs to have the surgery for the extra bone growth. It’s been very frustrating and painful for him that he has all these physical problems and we just hope that none of them are permanent.
His memory is still unpredictable. Several times recently we have had to tell him that what he feels on the side of his head is a shunt and that he will have that forever. Every time, he acts like it’s the first time he’s been told. Sometimes he remembers about being a paramedic and other times he doesn’t.
We’ve said it so many times, but we just can’t express enough how happy we are that his sense of humor is still there. Again, there’s a little bit of a difference, but he’s still hilarious. It’s a great feeling to be able to sit around as a family and just laugh.
