DAY 255 - 25th BIRTHDAY

We had a lovely day with Karson on his birthday today. He got to come home for 3 hours and was a excited at first but then got a little uneasy about things. We took him out of his wheelchair and put him in his lazy boy chair that he used to love and he seemed to do a little better. We had many friends and family come and visit with him today. Thanks for all the birthday wishes in person and on facebook. I printed all your comments on facebook and read them to Karson. He loved them. His good days seem to be outweighing the bad. His new speech therapist really seems to be getting through to Karson. He goes up Friday to increase his levels of baclofen. He is still very stiff in his legs and arms. It really hurts him at times. We have got to keep him healthy so that he can progress further. He had a flu shot and I would appreciate it if you would not visit if you are sick. My neice has been sick and she visits in a mask so that works also. Love to all of you and have a safe and happy holiday season.

  16. Karson,
    I've decided I'm not going to wait for Tyler to come visit. I'll come by my self. I'm not sure when seeing as how I was just in a bad car accident and now my car is broken. But I'm in Provo and a little walking won't hurt me. So I'll keep catching up on here and then stop by.
    I think about you often and send my positive energy your way.
    Miss and love you!
