TRACKING!!!!!!

What a blessing I just have to share it with everyone!!!! Dillon was tracking today! The vi son therapist was sure that he was tracking a picture of a black and white dog today. This is the first time that we have been sure he was tracking anything let alone something that wasn't a light. As you can imagine - I am floating way up above cloud nine right now! I have been seeing Dillon try to lift his head when I am carrying him more this last week and wasn't sure if he could be seeing more or not. I have also seen more times where he was actually very alert and then sleeping - like a normal baby - whereas before he was normally just in this "in between" state where I couldn't always tell if he was awake or asleep. We don't know what all this could mean as far as how much useful vi son Dillon will have - but it is a HUGE improvement!!! We think we have seen little tracks before with a light but he wouldn't ever do it more than once for us to be sure, but this time Dillon was tracking for most of the hour session!

I tried to get two pictures of Dillon but my camera card isn't working so I have to wait for my IT husby to come home and help me get them on.

Yay!!!

That last line cracked me up: "so I have to wait for my IT husby to come home..." At first glance it looks like you were calling your husband IT;o)

WOW you guys!! What an awesome blessing!! This came just a couple of days after I had traced Dillon's body in a photo with my finger as I prayed for every aspect of his healing...touching his eyes and praying for sight, touching his ears and praying for hearing, etc....Praise the Lord!!! Thank you for sharing this with us!! Praying still...
