Porter had another good day today getting his exercises in and working on his strength.  He is starting to discover that he can reach his feet but hasn't quite figured out how to get his legs up to his hands.  He's trying though!  Throughout the day he was lifting his legs up in the air towards his face and trying to reach his feet with his right hand.  Won't be long until he figures it out and starts putting those toes in his mouth.  

He did awesome on his trach collar workout today.  The attending on this week decided that we didn't need to put a time limit to Porter's "lung exercise" but instead just watch him and see how he does.  He went for just a little over an hour and then I could tell he was getting tired.  He was sweaty and just looked a little worn out so we put him back on the vent.  We'll do it again tomorrow!
