Beau's Walking...

That's right...look at him. He is in an upright, standing, position. You have no idea how wonderful it is to see him like this. I have not seen him in any other position, other than sitting or lying down, since he had his first seizure on July 17th. It took everything I had not to cry hysterically when I saw him get out of his car. I was just so excited. I was expecting a wheelchair or at least a walker but he did it all by himself. He walked right into the house and sat down. When it was time for dinner, he stood up and got his own plate. I can't believe it.
The boys were excited to see him, as well. We couldn't peel Coby from his side for the first half of the party. It was so nice to have him there.
I want you to know Beau that I am so proud of you. I know that I am the big sister so I am supposed to be an example to you, and teach you, but Beau you have now become the teacher. You are teaching me what it means to be strong and brave. You are teaching me not feel sorry for myself because I have a hang nail or a zit. You have taught me the importance of love and of family and of life.
*His head is looking so good. He only has the small pocket of fluid by his eye and that is it. AMAZING!!
If you are sad...call me. If you are mad...call me. If you are lonely...call me. If you want to fight...call me. If you need to cry...call me. If you need to laugh...call me. If you need to shop, by all means...call me. If you are frustrated...call me. If you are happy...call me. If you need to sit and do nothing...call me. I am here for you Beau and I wouldn't want to be any where else.
I love you with all of my heart little bro!
