Today I stopped by Kennedy Krieger Institute to see Joe.
Therapy was underway when I arrived. I said Hi and drifted into the background, watching the occupational therapists work with Joe on squeezing his legs together. Hard work...and he did such a great job.
I spent some time catching up with Angie -- getting a little insight into the ups, downs and in-betweens. So many questions and unknowns. I couldn't stop thinking of ways to try and help.
The days ahead, for all of us, are uncertain. One thing is for sure, Joe's determination and spirit are something to behold. This young man is very special.
Keep fighting the good fight Joe.
