I follow Chase on Facebook and his family posted the video there. Chase is sitting in a special wheelchair in the video. If you're on Facebook just search his full name and his page comes up. His family seems amazing and strong.

It's posted on Chase's Facebook page. Unable to provide a link to it from my iPad. Will try to figure out how to link...

I was so glad to see the video. I have thought about this sweet boy so often the last two months and he looks better than I imagined! Continuing to pray for him and his family who have handled this tragedy with amazing courage, faith and strength.

I do not think he was peddling - I think when the chair is going forward the pedals move - but it is exercise, stretching and movement for his muscles. That small smile though was the star of the video! Hopefully he will continue to be able to improve and gain more control.

Yes, i know he wasn't propelling his trike but his muscle tone was relaxed enough for his legs to rotate. It's the small things and the vocab to go with it! ( I used to work in a rehab setting)

Chase is home! He still has a long road ahead of him, but he's been discharged from the hospital and is now living at home.

Keep up the good work, Chase!

I saw this on FB. There was reference to looking back and thinking about what happened and their journey. Heartwrenching. This poor family and that poor little guy has come so far but it's still so devastating. It's great that they are able to have him home now.
