June 26, 2018 - With a lot of effort and concentration, Jay stood for 5 minutes without his leg braces on. Previously his therapist had to struggle to keep Jay's knees from bending and his body from collapsing.
March 27, 2018 "Standing Without Braces"
Sharon's latest video of Jay's therapy on Facebook shows him trying to stand without leg braces and using good posture. The standing times are very brief but this is still progress as his core strength is helping to balance his body on his legs. LAURA
November 24, 2017 Hello everybody!
It's good news! This week in therapy was a Really good week. On Monday, I walked 10 rounds and went a total of 361 feet, a new personal best. BUT, then on Wednesday I did 7 rounds and walked a total of 417 feet. Another record breaker! Praise God! Get this: on both days I had a bit of a head cold and was tired and so I prayed that God would gird me up and that I would do well in therapy, and look how he answered that prayer. God is amazing when you trust him! Can I get a witness? JAY

Jay writes: As I was out wheeling in my neighborhood, I ran across Kevin Cronin of REO Speedwagon fame. He was outside pushing his mom's wheelchair down the sidewalk. I stopped by them and talked a bit and got to shake Kevin's hand. That was another cool thing in the book "The Adventures of Jay."
August 11, 2017 - Praise God with Sharon and I as I tell you about the good therapy day I had today. On the first round I walked 102 Feet, (my best yet is 112) AND, I broke my previous record of TOTAL feet of 288 feet in 5 rounds by going 314 total feet in just 4 rounds. Praise God! He is good. JAY
