Medical Update

  • It is exciting that Josh is moving his arms more freely this week

  • Josh's neck is getting much stronger so we can get rid of the collar-YEAH!
  • His trunk muscles are also getting stronger, this is a beautiful thing.

  • His lungs are amazingly strong, we would be getting rid of the trach if it were not for surgery next week.

  • The best "medical medicine" we have had this week is DUSTIN MARTIN and JUSTIN coming this past weekend, PRES HOLLEY and SEAN this week!

Hey Josh,

Make sure you send Justin home as Brit is almost ready to take the "hottest chick in the school" out, but Justin has to be his crutch. He is too scared to do it without Justin and Shawn.

On second thought, maybe you should keep Justin in Colorado for a few more weeks - the hottest chicks in the school are usually trouble.

See you soon,

Thanks for the update. It is great to see smiling faces and know that Josh is getting stronger.

Love you all,

Just wanted to drop you a note and let you know that you are in our prayers. Over the years I have heard my brother Aaron mention from time to time how much he thinks of you and I know you are an exceptional young man. You have lots of great family and friends around you but know you have a few more in your corner cheering you on. Keep your head up!
