Head held high

The physical therapist came by yesterday to work with Porter.  She was super impressed that he was able to hold his head up and move it around! He's been laying in a bed for three months after all.  She worked on trying to get his shoulders out of the shrug position so he doesn't end up looking like popeye.  Porter wasn't too thrilled with this exercise but stretching can be tough sometimes.  He continues to get stronger everyday.  

They changed his vent setting today to make him do more work breathing which he is doing ok on.  He's struggling a bit and breathing kind of fast but they want to push him to work on strengthening his lungs.  PT came by again today but he was too tired to really do much since he was working more to breath.  He is doing well over all with all the changes lately.
