Slow and Steady

We continue to make progress.

Leo LOVES to stand holding onto something with support.

He is getting stronger each and every day.

The road ahead is a LONG one. We thank God for the progress Leo is making! Please pray with us that he continues to move forward. Leo has come so far in the last year. Friends continually say that Leo is getting so big. The fact is that he has only gained 3 pds in the past year. He has gotten taller. The most noticeable thing is that he has lost his "baby" look. He is now looking like a toddler. The big difference is that he has gotten stronger. Low muscle tone continues to be a struggle for him, but he is definitely working hard to build up his muscles.  May 22nd we are scheduled to have a swallow study done.  Leo is still not taking any food or liquid by mouth.  We are hoping that after the swallow study, the therapists will know best how to treat Leo and help him learn to eat.
