How is that for a headliner!!
 We are so proud of Roa!  Potty training is a scary uncertain thing with CP.  We didn't know if he would be able to relax enough to release while on the pottychair.  We don't know if he has the muscle control to hold it and go on the toilet instead of the diaper, but HE DID IT!
That boy continues to amaze us.
Last night at Special Olympics, Roa was in Rockstar mode.  Conquering that obstacle course like he owned it (with Mom and Dad supporting him,  just trying to keep up!)
We also did some scarf throwing and catching and I cannot believe the control he mustered to open up his hand and release the scarf and then try and catch it as it floated down.
Amazing.  Hopeful.  Promising.
Roa is starting to move around the gym at school with some independence in his gait trainer.  He is beginning to steer in the right direction.
Eat.  Drink.  Eat. Eat. Eat. Drink.   His Ipad commands us at mealtime as he requests what he wants next using his Ipad as his voice.  Total control.  Total understanding that he has some power over his life.
Powerful.  Amazing. Hopeful.
All these little things we take in and thank God for the miracles that dwell in Roa.  They are in there... we just have to be patient and wait for them to appear.
