It's so funny that you should mention his love of ice cream. He had two big helpings of melted ice cream fed to him through a syringe today. They were certainly the highlights of his eating today and I am sure ice cream will be a part of his diet everyday for awhile. :) He is really doing very well, we are amazed. He sat on the floor for 40 minutes today and cut up a piece of paper. He has adapted very well to having his arms unbendable, in fact when we were changing his clothes today and had his arm restraints off, his sister Ellie asked if she could try them on her arms and Jojo was very possessive and got upset and wanted his arms restraints back on.
As far as our next step, post op appt. in 4 weeks and then we hope to start speech therapy as soon as possible. He really wants to talk so bad and he actually had mastered many words before surgery. (My Mom is sure she heard him say Grandma clearer today) :)
JoJo has adapted so well. It's been a week since surgery and he is eating lots of mashed potaoes, oatmeal, apple sauce, yogurt and melted ice cream. He entertains himself by playing with his cars and train set as well as watching his favorite movies (Thomas the train and Cars over and over again). It snowed here today, we got about 2 inches of really wet snow. We built a 'snow bunny'.
