How Exciting is This!!!
We are so thrilled to report that today Payton started back to school! He drove his own car, parked, and walked back into Lincoln Way East to finish his senior year. So amazing! He has a few more weeks of intensive rehab (2-3 hours/day, 5 days/week). By the end of January he will only need outpatient therapy, after school, a few days/week. Payton was released by the surgeon to begin agility training to continue to improve his overall coordination. He’s been running for about 2 weeks now and can already see improvements. He’s still in good spirits and is looking forward to all that comes with finishing up high school. Prom, picking his college, graduation, and being with his friends.
There’s so much to be thankful for with his recovery. The support from others has been incredible. We appreciate every prayer and good thought for Payton. Thank you again for being there for our family!
