"There is no use trying," said Alice; "one can't believe impossible things."
"I dare say you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."
Some of the things that have, at times, felt impossible over the course of the last few months, have become a reality the last week and a half:
1: Owen's EEG is normal. This is a big deal. For many children who experienced the type of trauma that Owen did, this can take months or even years.
2: Yesterday, Barb, Owen's Physical Therapist was here (in the photo below) and said she's seen positive changes in Owen each week. He had a great day yesterday - from his PT appointment to hanging out at the clubhouse for the Halloween gathering (I've included a photo below of Owen in his bear costume - the photographing was the one unhappy moment last night).
I saved the best two for last...
3: Owen gained EIGHT OUNCES in the last week!!!!!!!!!!!
4: Lastly... Owen, much to our amazement, rolled over THREE times this morning! This was unaided and from a full prone position with arms outstretched, to laying on his back. He was then totally relaxed on his back which has NEVER happened. The proof's in the top photos!
Thank you all for your love, prayers and good wishes these last several weeks. I believe they are, in part, what has made these last few days a reality for Owen. Knowing that all of you are out there, sending positive energy to Owen, helps ALL of us remember to believe during those times when things start to feel impossible.
