    I am also an RN (haven't practiced in many years), I guess that is why I understand the harsh reality of their situation. And I get frustrated a little reading their updates, when I feel like they're not expressing their true emotions. I guess that's not for us to see and why we need to pray for them even harder, because they need to hold it all together, or else they'd never get thru this nightmare. I just want to ball my eyes out for their loss!! What a sad, sad tragedy.:sad1:

    I know what you mean. I am a speech therapist and worked in a clinical/rehab educational setting and had many students like Chase. He is receiving state-of-the-art therapy and I pray that he receives the same type of therapy in his educational setting. I know his parents agreed to only focus on the positive - they have to or it would be overwhelmingly sad. Chase and his family remain in my thoughts and prayers each and every day.

    The family just posted a very short video of Chase. He looks MUCH better than I thought he would.

    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.

    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)

    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.
