Journal entry by John & Michele Maloney

Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how you react to it. Ryan's reaction to this awful situation has been nothing short of amazing.  His determination and optimism have never wavered. He has twenty OT and PT sessions under his belt and is making incredible progress. He still works on strengthening his core, gaining independence, and riding the stim bike.  This week he has tried standing using various equipment like a standing frame and physical therapy parallel bars. The more he tries it, the better he gets! 

We are sad we are not able to be in Lake Placid on our annual family vacation this week and are missing all of our friends terribly.  Ryan sent J and Megs, telling them they had to go, take a break from here, and have some fun. It's definitely hard not being there, but we will be back next year!!

Please keep praying and sending positive vibes-- they're working!!
