Keeping Up the Good Work

Neil walked Sherman outside today. This time he remembered to hold the leash. That represents an increased ability to stay on task! They even played some fetch together. Since the weather was so lovely, he stayed outside a while and shot some hoops. He's getting to be such a strong walker, his doctor advised us not to have him use his wheelchair unless he needs it. Guess he'll be walking to therapy from now on.

After some work today, Neil was able to get some vibrations deep down in his throat. I got to hear a throaty, "hi Mom" that was almost like speech. Very promising for future talking. All in all, a good day.

Throaty is good! The focus to walk the dog is fantastic and shootin' hoops? Sounds like some normal life. Tell Neil we love him!
