I’m sitting here with Gavin at Speech Therapy, listening to him through the intercom and behind to two way mirror that divide us.
He’s so upbeat and happy, which is awesome.
At the same time, I’m realizing just how hard he is to understand anymore. His speech has regressed to a point that some of his speech needs to be interpreted because he just can’t articulate well anymore.
It’s really sad for me as a parent to experience this but at the same time, I’m so inspired by him because he just never quits and never gives up.
He’s never complained about the health issues that have him locked into the course and I find that awe inspiring. How many of us would have the strength and character to have that same approach to life? I don’t know if I could be the same way.
I recognize and feel the heartbreak but at the same time, I don’t think I could be prouder.
