Good morning

Austin has had a bit of a setback. He's had some skin breakdown on his backside where his skin was stretched before the skin grafts. He's back to more tummy time for 2-3 weeks to let his skin heal up. In the meantime he won't be able to sit in a traditional wheelchair or lay on his back. He is still able to use his prone cart, a wheel chair he lays on his stomach to use that also tilts to put him upright into a standing position. Austin is able to do this twice a day.  He still has therapy in the morning and afternoon as long as there is no friction on his backside.  During therapy yesterday, Austin hit a huge milestone and was able to support himself on his hands and knees. So even with his setback, he's still making progress! 

 

Thanks for everthing
